never used teraterm, I use securecrt for console, but you can try any
number of things, sometimes the terminal program has a menu option for
"send break" or shift-pause or alt-pause may work sometimes. Its different
for each terminal program.

On a lighter note though, I run FreeBSD on an ultra 10 at work, and an
E250 at home (its my primary mail server) and it works really well.
