    Your V100 does only have a serial console (via RJ45). Needed cables are
    delivered with the system.

    Attach the cable to the port labeled "A LOM" and use a terminal program
    with 9600 baud, 8N1.
     

    Exceed is a X server for M$ Windows. When you install it on a windows
    workstation you can access remote X servers, export displays, get a
    remote X login screen...
     

    Look in the Sun Solaris 9 x86 HCL (=Hardware Compatibility List) at
    http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl

    As you can see only SMC 1244TX is supported. Go and get a 3Com or
    Intel NIC.

    Of course on SPARC there is a GUI. Namely X11. But your V100 does not
    have a graphical console or simply: a graphics card!

    LOM is "Lights Out Management". You can control the machine even when
    it is switched off. All you need is a power cord and your serial
    connection and you could do everything with your machine from remote
    as you were in front of it.

    After LOM and "poweron" command the control is transfered to OBP
    (OpenBoot Prom). OBP then boots Solaris. In OBP you can make
    a lot of settings, like boot device, diag mode and a lot more.

    Try to break the boot sequence when you see the banner showing
    the machine type, CPU, speed and memory. A break sequence can be
    issued: Ctrl-Break from a windows terminal program. Then you see
    a prompt "ok ". Type "help" and read manuals on docs.sun.com.

    Greetings,

    Ralf.
