First I'd like to thank the following people for their very fast respose:

Tony Walsh
Olaf Hopp
and Steven Haywood (his statement is listed below...)

Just turn the keyswitch (if it has one) to the secure position


type kbd -a disable from a root prompt :)

Both stop the break signal from dropping to rom mode

Hi everybody

I'm about to change a serial terminal on a e4000 (running Sol. 2.5.1).
Many people told me that if I plug in the new terminal it'll produce a
<break> wich will, obviously, stop the server.
I can login via telnet or rlogin ant any time. So, maybe swaping the ttya
<-> ttyb and then plugin the terminal would do.
Might this work ?? and if, how to swap the tty's ?
