I am trying to get colorized output over a serial console (115200 8n1, ttyu0) on a small network appliance running 12.0-RELEASE. So far, I am not having much luck. I've tried setting CLICOLOR, COLORTERM, and making sure that $TERM is a color-capable value (currently "putty-256color"). ls -lG nor other commands like 'grep' are showing color over the serial console. Is there some switch I have over looked hiding somewhere? I have multiple other systems that use serial which display fine, but they all run Linux. Client system is Windows, and I am using the latest PuTTY release. I've also switched to bash as the main shell for users and root.
