can't you just telnet to it???

Or perhaps SSH also can in some cases.

Thanks guys

but I am connecting to the router for the first time since the router has been installed in my office ,I need to get the hyperterminal to connect to it so I can configure the Ip adddress of the ethernet interface see

Thanks

Telnet will do the same thing as hyperterminal.

kmadhukar 12-16-2002 03:27 AM

I have got to connect through the com port ,not on ethernet ,if telnet can do it can you tell me how

thanks

I think you can setup a connection profile that uses COM port.

Any place to get more info abt this "minicom"?

stickman 12-16-2002 08:22 PM

You can find the author's website here. Minicom is a fairly common app, and most distros include it.

gigsvoo 12-16-2002 09:12 PM

Thank you, I just found it inside my Psyche.

Did you guys have any problem with /dev/ttyS0?
First time when I have connected to my router through minicom everything went fine. Second time I was imposible to start minicom, geting the message " /dev/ttyS0 is locked".
I couldn't figure out why I get this message and in order to use minicom I have to change in minicom -s from ttyS0 to ttyS1, save and reopen minicom -s and switched back to ttyS0.
Any idea how could I solve this enoying problem?
Thanks

I would start by looking for a dead lock file. Look in /var/lock to see if there is a "LCK..ttyS0" file.

If so, delete it (you will probably have to "su" to root to do this).


For extra credit, does anyone remember the program that minicom is modeled after? :)

Hint: "Test drive"...
