Is it possible to use Serial Monitor to print data from Arduino Ethernet Board (not the Ethernet Shield) to the Arduino?

The description page says

The Ethernet differs from other boards in that it does not have an onboard USB-to-serial driver chip, but has a Wiznet Ethernet interface


So I am guessing that it is not possible. But just want to confirm.

It is possible, using an FTDI USB cable.


Would be nice if you could give me some pointers on how to do it. Thanks.

Plug the FTDI adaptor (like http://arduino.cc/en/Main/USBSerial) onto the six pins at the end of the board. If necessary, install the appropriate drivers for your OS. The FTDI adaptor then appears as a virtual serial port, just like a regular Arduino.
