[linux-dell-laptops] Help-terminal connection using direct serial cables
I am new to unix environment so pardon me for asking a
very plain question.
How can I connect to another unix machine from Redhat
or solaris box using serial cable directly connected
to serial port of one machine to another.
Reason I am asking this is that I am currently palying
with RedHat and Solaris on Intel. I use Hyperterminal
on Win95 machine to connect to my routers console
port. I was not able to find any thing in Solairs or
RedHat documentation that will allow me to do so. I
am trying to get into using Linux for network
troubleshooting due to abunance of utilities
available. IP based connectivity has been working for
me, but I could not figure out the console connections
to routers, switches and other unix machines. In my
daily work every now and then I run into a machine
that has no connectivity to the network and only way
to talk to the box is to direct console connection by
using Hyperterminal set to com1 on win95.
Any help will be welcomed.
