Installation on Soekris 4801
This is my first run at this type of install and I need a little bit of help. I followed the instructions on the wiki to get myself to the point of having pfsense 1.2 RC2 Embedded installed on a 1gb CF card, but when I put it in Soekris and connect via Hyperterminal (com1) I see the soekris bios post just fine and then it goes to auto boot and I just get a bunch of gibberish on the screen and it just continues on for a while. I used the hyperterminal settings found on the wiki (19200, 8, N, 1) so I'm not sure where I went wrong here. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Just try the other settings on your hyperterminal that are availlable (9600 ist the most common used).
btw: a much better terminal client:

Tried changing that setting but all the ones I tried jumbled up the post settings too, so I don't think it's that setting. Anyone else have any ideas?
Edit: NVM, I changed the conspeed on the soekris to 9600 (which apparently is the speed required for pfsense) and I can now access the console.
