Using a Pi as UART debugger for BMC

A place to collect information on using a Pi as UART debugger. Starting from zero as I had to look up what UART meant.
Found this in the Raspberry Pi documentation:
I think this blog post by Jeff Geerling is for looking at the Pi, not using the Pi to look at something like the BMC on the TP2, but here it is:

Attach Pi pins shown in the blog post to BMC UART pins (make sure to cross over TX->RX and RX->TX) and on the Pi, see whether there is a /dev/ttyAMA0 or /dev/ttyS0 and run
screen /dev/ttyWHATEVER0 115200
Haven't tried it myself but should work

I’m setting this up on my TP1, so a little different configuration, and I’m not quite finished with how I wanted it.

I set this up as a place for learning, so anything you want to would be great
