Thanks, but this is a fairly permanent serial console not
something I'm just now trying to get going.

It's been there for years now and worked with DragonFly, FreeBSD,
Linux, and others during that time.  DragonFly is on there now and
that worked fine for a little while.

I've tried different speeds along with different ports on both
machines without success.  In every case, it fails the same way.
No gibberish, just one-way communication.

I'll just have to try a different machine.  That should work fine.
