thanks for the reply,

Sorry for leaving this out, both systems are linux/ console, and remote box ( dell )..and using grub..

We have "redirection after boot" disabled, no place for "redirection after post"

Currently we have, all the redirection disabled in the bios, and let grub do the redirection. All works fine..just no bios redirect..

If we turn on "redirection to serial 1", after boot still disabled, all comes up find but it screws up conserver daemon process. After the remote is alive, we can restart the daemon and then it works...Therefore, by restarting the daemon on the console we work again, indicates to us that the bios settings may be correct because you can then login.

keyboard/VGA device, instead of the serial console where you want
