It's been a while, but I played with one of those boxes during our
(ir-)regular C0d3 & b33r sessions. 
The console was set up to use 9600bps, 8N1 - so you could either connect
with minicom, or with cu, as I usually, since it's there by default.
Naturally, you'll need a null modem cable, yes. 

cu -s 9600 -l /dev/cuaa[0-9] usually does the trick for me.

Isn't that handled like umass devices are usually handled, meaning it's
reachable as /dev/da* ?
