Thank you, Filipe. It doesn't work though. The server runs the XEN
kernel, and I think there's something I need to enable in XEN for it
to work, as XEN uses the console's of the domU's in the same way as a
serial console. So, I think I need to redirect it, somehow, but don't
know how yet.


Kind Regards
