Mac OS X Server: Xserve Serial Port

The Xserve has a serial port and it’s enabled by default.  You can disable by commenting out this line:

tty.serial      ”/usr/libexec/getty serial.57600″        vt100   off secure

    Really should mention that this line is found in the file /etc/ttys and a comment is a # character at the beginning of the line.

    Also should comment how to make it go away.

    `locate SerialTerminalSupport` stop

    Kill the getty process (find the pid by using ps -ef | grep serial)
