Ahh....  A Null modem cable?  Or, perhaps BSD will allow you to
configure the serial interface in the software - make one end a DCE type
and the other by default will remain a DTE.

Subject: cross-link serial console

If I have 2 machines, could I connect the machines to each other via
serial cable, in order to be able to reach each others' console in case
of out of band issues?

I know how to config it, I was just wondering if it would not bite each
