I need to capture output from the 3rd phase boot of freeBSD 6. I have a
new server (which is the pc whose output needs capturing) and a laptop
with freeBSD 6 working well.
I have read the handbook section
The handbook seems thorough on this subject, but not quite the "howto"
that a newbie like me requires.
From my reading, I distill my process as:
1 - connect a null modem cable between server and laptop. ok, I can do
2 - at the server boot loader prompt, enter the command:
3 - then enter command:
4 - now what?? I assume there is some software and setting to use on
the laptop to receive the output from the server console??? I am happy
just to receive it all to a file if that is easy enough. Can someone
please supply the missing link??
thanks, ke han
