You leave many details out, I'm guessing the machine doesn't power up, that's
why you want LOM access.

Looks incorrect, do you have the machine's manual?  You can get it from Sun.

The usual port is (but check the manual to be sure):

Pin 1 RTS
Pin 2 DTR
Pin 3 TXD
Pin 4 Signal Ground
Pin 5 Signal Ground
Pin 6 RXD
Pin 7 DSR
Pin 8 CTS

Also, the port may be disabled for LOM access, but if the machine is powered
down that's not important, only when Solaris is running (in which case you
to run one of the eeprom commands to enable the port).
