Just to be sure we're talking about the same thing:

You've got a serial cable between the Avocent and the port marked SERIAL
MGT on the back of the V210, and nothing plugged into the NET MGT port?

Unfortunately, my V210's are a few hundred miles away from me at the
moment and I have them all hooked up through the NET MGT port.  (they
arrived when we were short on terminal server ports, so using the ALOM
as a one-port TS made a lot of sense at the time...)

I have not seen that, but I've only really used the NET MGT connection.

Different accounts on the ALOM can have different permissions and I
belive sending a break can be denied to an ALOM account.  Did you
explicitly log in or are you just using the default login you get on the
serial port?

That's actually newer than the bits I'm currently running (1.4).
