minicom no reaction!

ich wollte minicom benutzen, um direkt über den ttyS0 zu kommunizieren. (Mit der Wetterstation Davis Vantage Pro).
Leider kann ich nach dem Programmstart noch so viel auf der Tastertur herum tippen, es passiert nichts.
Was mache ich also falsch?

Gruß Martin

I want to connect with minicom to the Davis Vantage Pro weatherstaion. If I started minicom, there is no reaction, if I press any key.

You need to configure minicom first. As root run 'minicom -S' and you'll get setup menu. Choose the right port, connection speed and so on.

I find minicom sort of hard to configure.
This floppy distro has minicom working on your com ports by default.
Good Luck.
