Connecting to the Console Port¶
Connecting to the VGA console is identical to connecting any computer to a monitor. Connect the VGA cable (DB-15) between the Netgate® system and the monitor. Use USB or PS/2 keyboard and mouse as applicable to the hardware.
If the device has both USB 2.0 (black) and USB 3.0 (blue) ports, use the USB 2.0 ports for better compatibility.
If the device has both VGA and serial, it is possible that the boot console will default to serial. If the boot process appears to hang after mounting the root volume, please see Boot Troubleshooting.
