There is a pfsense 2.0.1 (FreeBSD) and the command cu for access to the serial console, there is a Cisco W3550 attached but I can't get a connection.

I try following Command:

cu /dev/cuau0 -speed 9600


cu -ehot /dev/cuau0 -speed 9600

But I can't get a connection, there still came following output.

usage: cu [-ehot] [-a acu] [-l line] [-s speed | -speed] [phone-number]
