Hyper terminal in linux


Hello

Is there an equivalent to Hyper terminal (windows) in Linux, fedora specifically? I have to dial into a modem to access another unix system and make some changes to it.

Thanks

You can use minicom, which comes standard in most distributions, or you can install PUTTY, which I prefer based on ease of use.

Thanks. I do have cutecom installed and I also have a getty service running on ttyS0. When I hook up a dial up modem to ttyS0, it recognizes the modem. I can connect to the modem and run at commands. However, I have to dial out from this system (using an analog phone line) to another system which is also connected to a dial up modem (and an analog phone line) and access that system to make changes. Any ideas how I can accomplish this?

No idea, since you don't say whether you're trying to connect via getty or SLIP. Are you wanting to make an IP connection over modem using SLIP or PPP, or just get a login window on the other system??

If you just want a command-prompt/login, then the remote system has to be running mgetty on the port the modem is plugged in to, and be set to auto-answer. After that, go to minicom/cutecom on your local system, enter the AT commands to dial (atdt<phone number>), and off you go. Once it's connected, mgetty takes over, and will provide you a login prompt. Enter your ID/password.

As stated you need mgetty if you want to login to the server. I assume your using a recent version of fedora which uses systemd. A quick google found a couple of examples.
Most dialin howtos are fairly old which only refer to inittab.

Thanks everyone. I am using uucp. so running cu command connects me to the modem and from there I can type in atdt to dial out the number and connect to the remote system.
