With utilities PuTTY or Minicom, you can communicate from the host machine to the target board over a serial line. NVIDIA recommends using the Minicom terminal emulation program for better display of the setup prompts, but information is also provided on options to improve display of setup prompts.

It is recommended to use the tcu_muxer utility to demultiplex the console output from the virtualized processors to be able to connect to the Guest OS and other VM consoles. If the tcu_muxer is not used, it is possible that input at the console may be corrupted.
