Access to Evolocity Cluster Node via Com Port

So I realize this is probably the newbiest question of all. I recently inherited a Linux Cluster. Two of the nodes are not up and there is no VGA port on them. They have com1 and com2. Com1 is used by a command module (which has no VGA either).

I tried plugging into com1 and com2 with a laptop using a terminal emulator with the usual settings, i.e. 2400,8,none,1,hardware. I tried various speeds.

Any help into how to connect to this box would be greatly apprciated.

Many Thanks,

re: Access to Evolocity Cluster Node via Com Port

Okay, so there were two problems. One was my laptop, I used another machine and I could see the boot. The other is the machine never boots, if you miss the intitial messages there is nothing to see.

This is where it gets stuck...

ROM segment 0xc800 length 0x4000 reloc 0x9400
Etherboot 5.0.4eb4.1 (GPL) Tagged ELF (Multiboot) for [EEPRO100]
Boot from (N)etwork or from (L)ocal? N
