Connecting to a m0n0wall box over serial

I dug up my old m0n0wall box today and wanted to see what was on it. It's an old WRAP embedded system from PC Engines. It doesn't have any video out. I didn't want to connect it to my network as it's likely to have the ipaddress 192.168.1.1 and that would cause conflicts with my pfSense box.

FreeBSD 11 on the Acer Aspire One ZG5

For no reason other than boredom I bought an Acer Aspire One ZG5 notebook for £30 on ebay. I wanted to install FreeBSD on it and with and little google-fu I checked that it was indeed compatible with FreeBSD 11. Auction ended, off I go installing the best OS in the world!
