Serial connection (bare metal)


Question

Hi, I'm trying to connect to my bare metal XPenology box (Intel C236 board) via the serial port.  I'm hooking it up to my PC's COM1.  I am using a null modem cable, which is correct, right?  I am connecting with PuTTY using the recommended settings.  But when I reboot I only get garbage showing up in the console:

▒▒▒

Using Jun's loader, version 1.03b.  Everything comes up fine, I'm just wondering why the serial output isn't working.  Has anyone managed to get it running in a similar setup?

i can't install sucessful Xpenology on several boxes…

Install starts , but after first reboot i can't connect neither through "find.sonology.com" nor Synology-Assistant..

so i want to find the error via Serail console.. 
Output starts, but there are a lot of Messages so wuick i can't follow..

Did you ever find out what this initial password is? I used to know it a while back and now I've forgotten!
