How do I connect to a Telehouse server via the serial port?

At Telehouse, we have installed an Octopus 550 in sylvia, a domU that is installed on Octavia. An Octopus 550 is a pci card that has 8 serial lines coming out of it. Octavia already has two built-in serial lines. Octavia's first built-in serial line is outputting a getty for Octavia itself. The remaining 9 serial lines are connected to the following hosts:

  • viewsic
  • malcolm
  • chavez
  • gramsci
  • sontag
  • menchu
  • shadow
  • leslie
  • evo

In order to connect via serial console to one of the servers named above, ssh into sylvia with the appropriate user name based on:

servername-console

For example:

viewsic-console@…

This login will give you full read/write access to the console.

We can also setup additional users that have read-only access to the sessions created by each of these usernames.
