Connect to a modified router
In our setup, once running Kermit on the external machine, we connected by typing in:
set line /dev/tty000 to connect to the device talking to the router.
set serial 8n1 which is not really necessary since this is default.
set speed 115200 as given to us in the router specifications.
Once connected, you may need to press
Enter to get a console from OpenWRT.
Also, because the goal is to upload custom kernels to the router, it would be a good idea to connect the router to your network by wiring it up via one of the numbered LAN ports on the back of the router (NOT the Internet/WAN port).
