I am trying to run FreeBSC headless, without monitor and keyboard.

My serial interface looks correct:
sio0 at port 0x3f8-0x3ff irq 4 flags 0x10 on isa0
sio0: type 16550A, console

I believe the boot.config is set correct
cat /boot.config 
-h

When the PC boots all the boot info is sent to serial, also to "Hit [Enter]
to boot immediately..." works when I hit enter.

The problem is I never get a login prompt, it stops at the date readout.

Login through ethernet works but takes a very long time for login prompt.
