Hello

I want to use sio1 for console access. I read chapter 26.6 in the handbook and did the following:

/boot.config:
-P

/boot/device.hints:
[snip]
hint.sio.0.at="isa"
hint.sio.0.port="0x3F8"
### hint.sio.0.flags="0x10"
hint.sio.0.irq="4"
hint.sio.1.at="isa"
hint.sio.1.port="0x2F8"
hint.sio.1.flags="0x10"
hint.sio.1.irq="3"
[snip]

My custom kernel:
[snip]
device sio
[snip]

/var/run/dmesg.boot:
[snip]
sio0: configured irq 4 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
sio0: port may not be enabled
sio0: configured irq 4 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
sio0: port may not be enabled
sio0: <16550A-compatible COM port> port 0x3f8-0x3ff irq 4 on acpi0
sio0: type 16550A
sio0: [FILTER]
sio1: configured irq 3 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
sio1: port may not be enabled
sio1: configured irq 3 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
sio1: port may not be enabled
sio1: <16550A-compatible COM port> port 0x2f8-0x2ff irq 3 flags 0x10 on acpi0
sio1: type 16550A, console
sio1: [FILTER]
[snip]

/etc/ttys:
[snip]
ttyd0   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   vt100   on  secure
ttyd1   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   vt100   on  secure
ttyd2   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   vt100   on  secure
ttyd3   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   vt100   on  secure
[snip]

The baud rate etc. are correct as well (the standard settings).

The problem is I get no connection. I'm sure that my terminal works correct because I can connect other FreeBSD sever over the serial cable but not the above.
Any ideas?

Kind regards,
