OK, help is needed here.
I have 2 Ultra 2's; one is known good, working condition. The other I
just received and have been trying to get a prompt on.
First, I stuck a normal SBus CG6 or whatnot in, attached monitor and

Second, I removed the SBus card and inserted a known-good Creator in
the UPA slot. Booted; got nothing.
Third, I thought, well, maybe the PROM is set to only send output to
ttya... so I have connected ttya on the working U2 to ttya on the
I am using the command "tip tip9600 /dev/cua/a" - is that the correct
I have check the motherboard jumpers on both systems and they are both
set the same (default position for RS432 signaling).
I have tried both with and without a null modem connector.
What is the proper setup, and what should I do next?
