Re: Serial connection to windoze box

After many mistakes, defective cables, and a lot of help from these
I have login to my Slink box from a Win95 box. I have:
A null modem 9-pin mini cable about 10 meters long.
HyperTerminal on Win95
    (windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Hyper
    Direct to COM4
    vt100 emulation
    9600, 8, None, 1 stop, hardware | None flow ctrl

At Slink end, /etc/securetty added lines: "ttyS0, ttyS1, ttyS3" below
                    /etc/inittab: removed comment "#" from
                                     "T1:23:respawn/sbin/getty -L ttyS1
9600 vt100"

A click on Send will download a file of your choice to the pwd directory
on Linux.
Hope this helps. -jw
