MS-DOS: No VideoCard -> Console thru serial port ?
Posted 22 January 2008 - 08:19 AM
i have an old FreeBSD-based web-server on which i want to install a Network-MS-DOS.
Problem: The System has no vga-connector, just a small LCD-display, which i couldnt use.
Later i want to control the system thru terminal-emulation and TCP/IP, but because i dont know the network-card-vendor/type, which is installed, its complicated to install a working Network-MS-DOS.
Is there any MS-DOS-Tool, with which i could get the console and my typings thru a 9-pin-serial connector to another pc?
That would make my search for a working netcard-driver easier. Cause, i could configure such a serial-system on an other pc and just plug the hdd to the vga-less-server.
Maybe someone could give me a tip.
Thanks in advance,
