Hi Shal,

Sounds like things are working ok on the conserver side (well, as far
as can be seen).  I suggest you use another tool (like minicom) to
connect to your serial port and see if you get a login prompt.  You may
even want to connect a laptop or some other device to the serial port
instead of using the linux box.  Basically, start working from a "is
the host working" question to a "is the serial card working" question
to a "is conserver working" question (keep adding the layers).  That
will help determine if it's a mgetty/getty problem, serial card
problem, or conserver problem.  If you can see the console using
something like minicom and still have problems with conserver, let us

Hope that helps - a bit, at least.
