Telnet will do the same thing as hyperterminal.

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

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

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"...
