Post Chnage from UART to Ethernet console


Hi,

I am working on spearhead controller with uboot, linux 2.6.15.
When i boot the system and the kernel is loaded i can debug using ttyS0 (UART) i want this to be changed to ethernet port so i can access the console from anywhere on the network . Pls help me how to go about it

I know abt the security is problem, but i am working on LAN

Thanks in advance
