two question on serial communication

Postby zeenix » Fri Jun 27, 2003 1:29 am

Hi everyone

(1) They say that minicom is the linux equivalent of HyperTerminal. But so far i havent been able to use minicom for my purpose but hyperterminal. Actually i am booting my kernel on another machine with option console=ttyS0... can anyone tell me whats so special with minicom?

(2) I am also trying to create a poin-to-point network between the 2 computers through the same serial line. From some howtos i got the idea that i only need these two commands:

slattach -p cslip -s 9600 /dev/ttyS0 &
ifconfig sl0 192.168.0.1 pointopoint 192.168.0.2 up

and

ifconfig sl0 192.168.0.2 pointopoint 192.168.0.1 up

on the other PC.

everything seems to be fine till these commands but when i try to ping the other computer or viceversa i get an error like ".. timed out, bad link?..". Note that the serial ports and the cable are working perfectly well.
