Terminal App Recommendation

(1/3) > >>

Can anyone recommend an app to connect to serial devices? I found my COM port with the help here. I'm trying to connect to a network switch to test out the connection.

Is it an active or passive switch?  If active, all you need is a browser and open the management console.  If passive, just plug in the network cable to the internet modem and another cable to your computer then use a browser to connect to the internet.

I have both active and passive switches on my internal network and have never used a serial device on them.

There is a versio of Putty for OS?2 Arca OS   It is a bit old. the is another app called ZOC which they stopped making an OS/2 version ages ago. but I think you can still get it from EMtec .... https://www.emtec.com/download.html?what=zoc#zocfiles. It was a very good application.

I tried QPutty but there is no serial option. With ZOC I can see the serial output from the switch but can't type anything.

Kermit? http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/k95.html. Hmm, binaries don't seem to be there, I'll zip up my install and attach.
Also https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/util/remote/miniTerm_a5.zip might work as a simple terminal program. It's been a long time but there are others at https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/util/remote/

Let me know if kermit works, should be uploaded to Hobbes
