I have a pfsense appliance (Netgate 2440) with a usb console port,
while it used to be a serial port, now devices seems to have a usb
one. If you plug an usb wire from an openbsd box to it, you woull see this in your **dmesg**
uslcom0 at uhub0 port 5 configuration 1 interface 0 "Silicon Labs CP2104 USB to UART Bridge Controller" rev 2.00/1.00 addr 7
ucom0 at uslcom0 portno 0
To connect to it from OpenBSD, use the following command:
# cu -l /dev/cuaU0 -s 115200
And you're done
