I am not aware that it has timeout. Perhaps the problem is on the other end
or if you configure too high speed, it might be unstable.

What is the version of minicom you use? On which system (debian,kernel
etc) ?

Last time I used it it without issues was in jessie, couple of months ago.

Try at lower speed/rate.


The version is 2.6.1 running on Wheezy (sparc). The speed is 9600 baud. Once it goes on line there is no problem. It is just when the program starts it starts off line.

I just tried to determine if there is a timeout. I found that when minicom starts the status line says offline but it actually is working, on line. The status display changes to online after about a minute.

So, I guess I don't really have a problem! I don't care what the status line says.
