Console Terminal Blank After Connect - Is it bricked?
My parents have an SG-1000. I manage all their stuff remotely. Not sure what happened today, but router does not work-unable to connect to WebGUI. I had someone plug in a computer directly to modem so I can Teamviewer in - and I am now trying to connect through Console port. I have all proper settings in Putty, when I click open, I just get blank screen. Is this device bricked?
Okay - was using wrong USB cable. Now I see terminal output. Now, however, after bootup, there are no options. The terminal just goes blank and pressing keys does not do anything.
I get a message…"Welcome to (Patch)....
and then some output, but the last line is just an empty cursor.
If you are using the console you may set up first on all three or four points the right numbers;
- On your appliance (in the BIOS)
- Serial/COM Port of your PC (if available)
- Putty (on Windows)
- pfSense (no need because its the default setting)
The default serial console settings in pfSense 2.2 and later are 115200/8/N/1, meaning:
Data Bits: 8
Parity Bits: None
Stop Bits: 1
The you could be sure to get out the right output in the console (read able)!
