Serial Communication betweeen FreeBSD and Fedora 15
I would like to connect two Unix Flavored System through Serial port. Can some one shed some light on this pleasE?
On one Machine I have a freeBSD installed and the other Machine I have installed Fedora 15.
The FreeBSD is where I will be initiating the connection and Fedora will be accepting the connection.
I have changed the run level on my Fedora so that It stops at command line. (i.e., set the run level to 3).
Both the Machines have com POrts (Male) and I connect them back to Back via Serial Cable (Both end Female Connectors)
Now from the FreeBSD Machine, I initiate a connection but i dont see the connection getting successful
I use the following command to initiate serial connection on my freeBSD machine.
'cu -l ttyu0' but unable to make any connection. I should see the command line of Fedora 15
I have disabled Firewall on my Fedora 15.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Im no expert.
I had been trying to connect using ethernet, but needed a crossover cable instead of a straight thru cable....
