Minicom For Linux

Mincom should be set up with:

This can be done when minicom comes up by typing:

    minicom -s 

and entering

You should end up with a minirc.dfl file (perhaps in /etc - check minicom h) that looks like:

    # Machine-generated file - use "minicom -s" to change parameters.
    pr port             /dev/ttyS0
    pu baudrate         115200
    pu bits             8
    pu parity           N
    pu stopbits         1
    pu minit            
    pu rtscts           No 

Make sure the /dev/ttyS0 has read and write permissions for everyone.

Here are a few key minicom commands.
