Serial console connection from your mac using a usb-to- serial adapter

First plug in your usb to serial adapter and find the devicename using the Terminal program, mine is listed here:

ls /dev/tty.*

/dev/tty.usbserial-AH06ORK9

Then start the screen command with the devicename and baudrate

screen /dev/tty.usbserial-AH06ORK9 9600

If you want to keep a log you can do so with

Control-a H

When your finished exit with :

Control-a Control-\
