minicomminicom - is a menu driven communications program. It emulates ANSI and VT102 terminals. It has a dialing directory and auto zmodem download.
# on RedHat based: yum install minicom # on Debian based: sudo apt-get install minicom
# Menu CTRL-A Z # To Quit CTRL-A Q # To send (via xmodem/ymodem/zmodem) CTRL-A S # To receive (via xmodem/ymodem/zmodem) CTRL-A R # To configure CTRL-A O
# Bring up minicom configuration minicom -s # Connect to ttyUSB0 with 115200 baud rate minicom -b 115200 -D /dev/ttyUSB0The default configuration is 115200 8N1 with Hardware Flow Control. I usually disable Hardware Flow Control in my setting and save to the default 'df1'.
Although minicom describes itself as "friendly", it can be painful to setup and use. As a suggestion, if you don't need send/receive abilities like xmodem, tio is much easier to use.
