[OpenIndiana-discuss] Setup serial console on ttyc (the third serial port)

Perhaps all described procedures work on ttya but I can't get a console on ttyc.

ttyc (the third serial port) is a SerialOverLan port

I can see and navigate the grub menu via ttyc.

changing /rpool/boot/grub/menu.lst into something like below results
in grub being redirected.
serial --unit=2 --speed=9600 --word=8 --stop=1 --parity=no
terminal serial

So the third serial port is being redirected as expected. But neither
change, as described in
 to the kernel line resulted in a console.

kernel /boot/platform/i86pc/kernel/unix -B console=ttyc


kernel /boot/platform/i86pc/kernel/unix -B console=ttyc,ttyc-mode="9600,8,n,1,-"


kernel /boot/platform/i86pc/kernel/unix -B console=text

I changed a couple of other files as well but nothing gives me a console.

In the /boot/solaris/bootenv.rc file, I added:
setprop ttyc-mode 9600,8,n,1,h
setprop console 'ttyc'

In the /kernel/drv/asy.conf file:
name="asy" parent="isa" reg=1,0x3e8,8 interrupts=5;

Perhaps it works on ttya but it doesn't work on ttyc. Is there
something else that needs to be changed?

Any assistance on getting this working would be most appreciated.
