Hi, did you get this working?
I am also not able to send a break signal to my ultra5 from minicom.
i see output from the console and watch teh solaris system booting up
but cannot stop the process with ALT-A-F sequence as per minicom

also im not sure that the input is setup correctly as i dont get
output from keyboard. ie at Solaris Login Prompt, when i attempt to
key in the username, the console responds to what looks like a
carriage return and i cannot see what i type.

any help much appreciated.
