How to access XSCF on Sun M4000 Sparc Server

my problem is getting the XSCF> prompt. I have a M4000 Server & am trying to access XSCF via Hyperterminal. Used the Serial Connection but am getting a console login rather than the XSCF> prompt; logged a call with Oracle as it's on maintenance; they advised to connect via the Ethernet connections but getting nothing there at all.  Do I need to reboot the Server to get to XSCF? Sun/Oracle say no. I found them very unhelpful; I guess they expect me to have a lot more knowledge than I actually have. Any feedback appreciated.

When connected via serial connection, and the Domain/OS console is showing, use #. (that's shift-3 followed by '.') to drop back into the XSCF.

Then you can see what the IP setting are to be able to connect via that interface.

Thanks for that Jeremy; I'm not near the Server right now but will try that in the morning. I'd try the ordinary # symbol, alright. Didn't realise that was how I should do it. Will update tomorrow
