If you mean telnet connection, there's telnet which works from the console. But if you mean other ways of connecting, then I'm not sure..but don't you use telnet to deal with routers etc?

Hi b0uncer,

Of course I know that, my question is clear I think, I need to use the serial port to communicate to serial devices as in HyperTerminal.

Thanks ......
