Sometimes you can’t get a serial cable connected to an IPO but you need access to the debug port, ie, no serial cable or physical access. This doesn’t help if you’re looking for startup logs but it gets you access to an IPO that’s up and running.
- Connect via the manager
- Expand the User section and select user NoUser.
- Select the Source Numbers tab.
- Use the Add button to add this magical source number:PATCHES 0x0020
- Press OK and save the configuration to the IPO
- Restart the IPO
Now you should be able to telnet to the IPO’s IP address, and connect to a debug shell.
