HyperTerminal is to M$ as _____ is to Linux...


Can you fill in the blank?

I am trying to get in the back of a hub via a serial cable and I don't know what program to use. What program does Linux (RedHat 7.2) use as a terminal emulator?

Thanks...

you can use any terminal you want, xterm, gnome-terminal etc.. just a matter of telling them what to conenct to as opposed to the local machine

Wasn't the original post trying to get to an async port (management port?) on his hub? I think that they'll have to run some program /in/ that xterm (i.e., ``xterm -e someprog'') in order to communicate through one of their async ports. Something like minicom (already mentioned) or perhaps gkermit.
