Unhappy minicom shows offline and is not captuing the serial data being sent


Minicom was running fine two days ago capturing data from a gage device via a serial cable. Yesterday, users of the data started complaining that they were not receiving any data.

The minicom status line reads offline. Is this part of the problem or is this normal (I never really noticed it before.) All settings on the gage device match the minicom settings.

ANy help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Discovered that it is capturing the data, just not showing it on the terminal screen.

Can you provide some detail on how you figured it out? Thanks!

Verification of collection

I had the data being written to a file as well as being displayed on the screen. I checked the content of file to which the data was sent.
