[SOLVED] Use serial on pfSense to connect to switch?
Is it possible to SSH to the pfSense box then serial/telnet from pfSense over a com port to a connected switch?

You might be able to use cu to connect. Telnet to the management IP would be easier, but I suppose in some situations you need a physical connection. Read the man page and test in the lab. I think screen is available from the default pkg repository if you want an alternative.
screen is available via 'pkg install' if you want to use it. cu will work fine though.
To connect to COM1 (/dev/cuau0) at baud 115200:
cu -l /dev/cuau0 -s 115200
cu works great! Thanks
