Help searching for a Debian Programme


I am ruing a Debian. I am trying to move away from windows but I am having really hard times (keep doing stuff in my Windows machine).

I have a programme in my windows machine that you can read any port easily. you can change the com port and thats it (like hyperterminal)

Do you know any program in Linux that does the same?

Additionally I have done some work in Microsoft Visual C++ can I some how use the same code???? Do you know a something in Linux using similar routines/classes?

Thank you for your help!

The problem with that is you're assuming the ideals and designs are identical. Take a look at how the /dev directory works.

for a Linux GUI client that will allow you serial port access look at putty and gtkterm

On windows I also prefer Putty or TerratermPro over hyperterm..

Try asking the VC++ qn in the Programming forum; I'm sure there's an equiv, but its not my kind of programming.

Hi farslayer, I have tried you 2 comment and they are sport on, I tried putty on windows and it works fine.

Now I am having some problems with putty and gtkterm on Debian, after install the bluetooth dongle following the this steps
aptitude install bluetooth
aptitude install bluez-gnome

I can go the bluetooth setting and changes the Adaptor name
I could confirm that the device is alive (with my mobile phone)

The only way I can scan from device from the PC is using this command line "hcitool scan"

which works fine, I do force connect with "sudo hidd --connect <diviceName>"

Now the question how can I see the data from the bluetoothDogle/GPS port?
In Windows I can change the comm port and it works fine. but here is /dev/ttSO to serial comm but what about for the bluethooth dogle?

(just to clarify! I am having a usb bluetooth dogle which I am trying to connect to a GPS bluetooth)

Thanks for your help
