The FOX Board has a serial console port on its J10 connector. By connecting this port to a RS232 port of a PC through Fox Console and a straight cable (not null modem) you can have direct access to the Linux console allocated by default to the Fox device /dev/ttyS0.
Default baud rate and parity parameters for the PC serial port are: 115200,n,8,1. Flow Control=OFF.
