    Serial Communication betweeen FreeBSD and Fedora 15


    Hi Experts,

    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.

    Thanks
    -Vijay

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