Question lom don't execute commands

I'm new in Sun, i just recieved a sun v100 server, i already connected the server to a workstation (using the hyperterminal tool) and it seemmed to be fine... however when the LOM> prompt appears and i try to introduce various commands but it does nothing.

LOMlite starting up.

Ram-test: 2048 bytes OK
Initialising i2c bus: OK
Searching for EEPROMs: 50(cfg)
I2c eeprom @50: OK

Initialising lm75 @48: OK
System functions: PSUs fans breakers rails gpio temps host CLI ebus clock

LOMlite console
lom>
LOM event: +0h0m0s LOM booted
lom>poweron

(it does nothing...)

also when i turn the server on with the on/standby switch it also seems to be starting fine, but again when the ok prompt is displayed i try to execute commands and it does again nothing.

First thing I'd check is the hyper terminal's settings, paticularly make sure that hardware flow control is set to none.

the flow control that i have configured in the hyperterminal was Xon/Xoff, I changed it as you suggested but the lom kept doing nothing...Smilie

Its connected via COM1 with the following connection settings:

Bits per second: 9600
data bits: 8
Parity: none
stop bits: 1
Flow control : none

The terminal settings are the following:

Function, arrow and, ctrl keys act as: terminal keys
backspace key sends: ctrl+H
emulation: auto detect
Telnet terminal id: ANSI

ASCII setup menu:

Send line ends with line feeds: on
echo typed characters locally: on
Wrap lines that exceed terminal width: on

i 've already tried changing the emulation to a VT100 but i've got the same result

And what cable are yoiu using to connect to the consle port?A regular CAt-5? If you are, that's robably what's causing it. Do yoiu have one of those flat cables with the RJ-45 ends?
I'm sorry I cannot give you a better answer, but the issue you are having is 99.99% of the time the rsult of a mis-configured terminal emulator and/or having the wrong cable/adaptor pin-out. I've been cariying a couple cables with me for a few years now, these come with Fujitsu PrimePower servers, and are specially amde for console connections; I keep them because I know conencting to serial ports can be a problem, as you are experiencing.

Actually you were right, i've changed the cable (well, i changed it two times) and the console start responding.
