Thanks for your answer.
I`ve tried different speeds, it didn`t help.
We just tried now a new cabling setup, following the specifications of a
null modem cable. Linux console redirection works now even with having
Hardware Flow Control configured on the IOLAN (typing didn`t work
previously), but still no luck with the PE Console Redirection...
The PE4600 BIOS autodetects the speed (supported are 9600, 19.2K, 57.6K
or 115.2K accordingly to the manual), I`ve tried all of them.
It looks like the *auto-negociation* right at the beginning of POST
between the IOLAN and the PE fails.
I have also a PE8450, where Console Redirection works in combination
with the IOLAN. It worked pretty much out of the box back then.
I copied the IOLAN settings over, flashed the latest Firmware on the
IOLAN, no success.
Maybe this combination is just a no go. :(
