hyper terminal /minicom on linux
Hi friends,

I am trying to get a hyper terminal behaviour from my linux redhat fedora 10 box. some how I unable to see any thing
in the minicom terminal. what could I be missing.

I have a serial cable(null modem) connected to anohter windows m/c to this linux m/c.
the cable is working , it is verified checked by conencting between two windows m/cs . the hyper terminals in both m/cs showing characters from the other end.

windows to linux I am unable to see anything either end.

I set the baud rate stop bit parity to the same values both ends. 9600N1

I removed all modem scripts from the minicom.

used ttyS0 and ttyS1 both , but none worked.

what else am I missing ?

Could some one tell me how to see some characters from the serial port of the linux box. without minicom any other solution is also welcome.

Thank you

Never used it myself, but did you man minicom (I can't find any tutorials about using it to connect to windows)? I did notice some articles referenced ckermit as an alternative.
