How to connect to a Cyclades console server

Here I have a Cyclades AlterPath ACS16 Console Server. To connect to a serial port, first I need to login to the Cyclades

emerson@shellcore:~ $ ssh root@192.85.176.210
Password:

[root@cyclades011 root]#

To connect to a serial port, type the corresponding port on the ts_menu utility

[root@cyclades011 root]# ts_menu

I logged out of the ALOM and I didn’t have the password for it. Happily it timed out and I was back on the ALOM.

Serial line login timeout, returns to console stream.

Enter #. to return to ALOM.

To quit, press CTRL + \
