Then I'm doing something wrong. dconschat only worked, when dcons is
loaded on host system. (Target System has loaded dcons and dcons_crom)

% fwcontrol
2 devices (info_len=2)
node           EUI64          status
   1  20-00-00-00-04-00-52-cf      0
   0  35-4f-c0-00-35-67-98-30      1
% dconschat -t 35-4f-c0-00-35-67-98-30
[dcons disconnected (get crom failed)]

And nothing ever happens.
Strange, now I've loaded both dcons and dconscrom on the host system,
but the above message still appears. When I tried yesterday, dconschat
started working after I loaded dcons on the host. Weird.
