I've configured minicom to use the serial port, and have configured
minicom to use the port with 9600 8N1, but (stupid user level
question...) how do I actually connect? Should minicom connect
automatically on startup, or do I have to issue a command or something?
Just for the record, I've verified that my null-modem cable works between
two Linux machines:
cat < /dev/ttyS0 # on machine 1
echo hello > /dev/ttyS0 # on machine 2
hello # on machine 1
