minicom

Minicom is a text-based, serial communications program designed for Linux and distributed under the Free Software Foundation GNU Public License. It works with the Lynx browser and has script capability.

Minicom is sometimes installed as a packaged component of an advanced Linux distribution such as Debian. However, minicom will run under all popular distributions of Unix. Minicom offers a dialing directory with automatic redialing, and allows for multiple users with individualized configurations. Minicom has features similar to the shareware program called TELIX and has some of the features of Kermit, a popular file transfer and management protocol and suite of communications software programs. Kermit can be used from within minicom if Kermit is also installed on the computer.
