Hi!

This is a terminal software, meant to be used with a suitable server. It's not a debugging tool. If there is a server at work on your board, okay, then. But you cannot just "hook it up" and expect to be able to debug the board...

Debugging is best done in a simulator before pumping the software into the board...

Good luck

Thor

Putty is ssh/telnet client and terminal emulator that can be used with a embed system. If your embed does have the port available and services are started then you can communicate via a shell.

As to debug, most embed system do have toolkits to support interactive debugging. Sure you could use the Putty terminal on a MS Windows or Gnu/Linux based system to have interactive control as long as the embed supports such actions.

FYI: I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem or query.



I also suggest that you might consider posting question(s) concerning embeds & Linux in
Linux - Embedded to get targeted response.
