sc alert sc request to send break to host

Im totaly new with solaris and I just got a sun fire V240. I connected to with windows via port serial mgt and opened a session with an hyperterminal.

But I get the message "sc alert sc request to send break to host"
and I do not know what do do.

Thanks for helping a newbie.

Looks like you came in in the middle of something.
'break' is the command to suspend the OS. Not sure why you see that if you didn't send it, but 'console' will get you to the console side.(#. will return you to the sc prompt, aka ALOM).
'help' will show you commands (including diags) on both sides, if you get bored with that, type 'reset-all' from the ok prompt and watch it boot to see if it's complaining about something.
Check for documentation on ALOM, OpenBoot Prom, the install guide, etc.
