connecting a DS20 on a 700/92 hp terminal

Hi All ,

i have a DS20 server but without a graphical card , so i connect the server from its COM port to an old 700/92 hp terminal ,
is this connection is a valid one or no ?
but i am receiving nothing on the terminal .
what should be the configuration of the terminal (baud rate , parity, flow control)
Thank you

Hi,

Settings for terminal are 9600 8/none (Flow control setting doesn't matter).

Cable should be a DEC Connect cable or eviquilent (Cisco console cable works).

Make sure the console environment variable "CONSOLE" is set to "SERIAL" not "graphics" ("set console serial", "init" to reset).

You can always use an emulator on a laptop if you get stuck. (VT100 mode)

Regards

Jason
