Serial Console lock-up when "Lock Console" was selected.

  • I have just installed pfSense 1.0.1, and enable the Serial Console option and it works like a treat.

    But the problem starts as soon as I turn on "Lock Console" screen, the serial console won't turn work.  Nothing came up to prompt me to type in the Username and Password, it is just a blank screen.  The stays like that until I have to reboot the box in order to work, everytime.  It logged in once and as soon as I log out, it freezes again.

    Does anyone got any ideas on how to workaround this?


  • That's the point - it locks the console. :) It completely disables it, it's working as it should.

    There's no way to make it prompt for a login at this time. It's either enabled or disabled.
