COM Terminal in Linux?


Heya! I need a program which will open a 9600 baud terminal on COM1 on the command line in linux.

Like hyperterm in windows, but on the command line.

So what should I use? Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the Linux equivalent is KPPP

I have it on my Fedora desktop.

Oh sorry, you meant the command line.... doesn't telnet do that?

Telnet will connect over a network connection to a port on another computer.

I need something for a serial COM port on the computer.

Does it have to be command line? Can it be ncurses based? If so then minicom should do the trick.

I'd still prefer command line. Any other ideas? Thanks!

Telnet is insecure, but that said, try man telnet in a console.

IMO minicom is exactly what you are looking for. It would be similar to the old DOS Procomm.

ncurses is a programing library for formating characters in a text console
A good app with ncurses would be midnight commander.
