On a new hardware, we have two different settings:
- pfSense images are made for a 9600 bauds console.
- ALIX default settings are 38400 bauds 8N1.
- APU default settings are 112800 bauds 8N1./li>
It may be interesting to set ALIX default speed to 9600 bauds.
If you are using the APU, it is not yet possible to change the serial console speed, so please skip this page.
Modify ALIX bios settings
Open your terminal with 38400 bauds.
During first seconds of boot, press the "S" key to access bios settings:
Press the '9' key to select 9600 bauds.
Quit to reboot.
Close your terminal as it is set from 38400 bauds and should be now 9600.
