Hello Everyone,

I am new to OpenBMC and I need some help about how to access the BMC console which I am not able to, after many tries.
Currently, I have connected my Host Server (i.e., Thinkstation P510 - Intel X86-64 CPU installed with OS: Ubuntu 18.04)
with Intel Server Board S2600GZ (OS :Ubuntu 14) which has a BMC chip using a USB-TTL Serial console cable
("xcluma Usb To Ttl Serial Cable Debugger For Raspberry Pi Beaglebone Cubietruck".)
The minicom is not showing me any prompt & it's paused; nothing is going ahead.
I googled some websites, its suggested to disable the flow control but even that does not help.
Are there any other ways to access it for example web interface etc. or serial console is the only way ?

Thanks in Advance,
