Hypertermand file transfer

The linux version of Putty works for me.
It has no modem or long-distance definitions, but allows sessions via serial, ssh, or telnet. It also comes with PSFTP and PSCP. Between those and the native OpenSSH tools (ssh, sftp, scp and rsync there are very few file transfer needs unanswered.


I have used lftp for scripted transfers at time, as it has interesting automation options the other tools lack.

Your requirement is somewhat special.

Unless you face very complex issues, I would simply use OpenSSH for most such purposes. If you need a tool for serial communication, options include minicom and putty. Research a bit and pick the smallest that will serve the purpose.

Hyperterminal equivalent.

There are two alternatives to hyperterminal, first is command line based and second is graphical based.
You can install it using-
Code:
# yum install minicom
which is command line tool. To start it-
Code:
# minicom -s
The graphical serial terminal is cutecom-
Code:
# yum install cutecom
