How are connecting to the console on the remote machine?  It's not
clear from your message if you understand that you need to have a
serial connection, or if you think conserver will magically connect you
to a remote machine's console.

If there is a local keyboard, then you won't be able to access the
console on that machine unless you've specified in the NVRAM to use a
certain serial port as the console instead of a local keyboard and

This is conserver's password protection, so that not just anyone on
your host can connect.  If you want to override this for testing, set
your local host as "trusted" in the conserver.cf file.
