serial console: how to set up terminal?
I am trying to connect to a headless server via a serial cable from my Fedora box.
How do I set up the terminal at the client end? I have tried minicom but it is not clear what settings (other than the default 9600 8n1) are required. Specifically, how do I log into the remote system? Obviously there is no modem involved, so AT commands are useless.
Also, are there any alternatives to minicom? I find it cumbersome to use.
