NetworkSpace: Serial Port Access

Assuming that the pinning described in this thead could fit on the pins of the Networkspace PCB, I measured the voltage on the pins. I measured 5 volts on the pin near the screw hole, and ground on the next. So I assume the pinning

1 VCC (+5V)
3 JTAG TMS : input to board
4 JTAG TCK : input to board
5 JTAG TDO : output from board
6 JTAG TDI : input to board
7 Serial RxD : input to board
8 Serial TxD : output from board

is correct, counting from the screw hole. With my 3.3 volts TTL serial-to-USB converter connect to GND, RxD and TxD, I got this bootlog:
