Yes.

try the serial cable first, then if you are getting nothing after a few attempts, add a null modem in the chain, this swaps the RS232 TX and RX wires over.

PC -- COM1 ------ RS232 CABLE -- SERIAL A -- ULTRA5

PC -- COM1 ---- NULL MODEM ---- RS232 CABLE -- SERIAL A -- ULTRA5

Old 12-03-2007
9600 bps
8 bits
no parity
1 stop bit
no flow control

should do for starters, if problems then add hardware flow control.

Can you post the first line of booting from device .....

Are you getting hardware problems? If you have just received this machine have you checked everything is connected firmly inside.

A good check is to carefully remove and reseat the DIMMS, also disconnected and reconnect each disk cable.
