If connected via serial link my terminal software is behaving strange: cursor keys are not working properly, vi prints messy characters etc.

The reason is the wrong configured terminal type of your terminal software. In Linux terminal type is defined in the TERM environment variable and is set to TERM=linux by default. The terminal type of your terminal application (HyperTerminal, ZOC, minicom etc.) should be set to the same type to interact correctly with the OnRISC console. If linux terminal type is not available in your software VT100 can be used instead. To do this add following line to the ~/.bashrc:

export TERM=vt100
