Debugging Open Firmware Using Telnet

Debugging Open Firmware Using Telnet: Developer Documentation: Technical Notes -- CONTENTS * One machine versus two machine debugging * Gathering your tools * Determining telnet capability * Using the correct Ethernet connection * Setting up your machines * Summary * Downloadables This Technote addresses debugging your device's firmware using Ethernet and the telnet protocol to connect a client machine running a telnet application to a target machine running Open Firmware. Any engineer or scientist who understands how to communicate at a local bus level with a PCI peripheral may find this technical note interesting. If you decide to use this telnet method of debugging, be aware that some of the tools used in the Technote are shareware. Updated: [Oct 16 2000]
