   With no graphics bits and no keyboard plugged in, the machine
should start talking through serial port A.  Given that, you should
be able to shove a <BREAK> at it through that port to drop the system
to an "ok" prompt.

   I'm not familiar with Tera-Term, but if you can get it to send a
<BREAK> (i.e. deliberately cause a massive framing error) then the
Sun machine should drop to "ok".
