   Hi.
   I've spent the past few days battling with Minicom under Eterm, and 
   haven't been very successful. For some reason, none of the ctrl-A 
   commands speak well at all, and configuring my serial port has been a 
   nightmare. Furthermore, the dialing directory seems to stay open once a 
   connection is established.

   Since Minicom doesn't seem to want to cooperate, can anyone recommend 
   another terminal package? Or, is there a way to get Minicom speaking? 
   (Personally, I'd like to just stick with Minicom, but if there's a better 
   package out there then I'll switch. :)

Why not use C-Kermit?
Kermit has been ported to every mechine that exists and it is
extensible.

Minicom is a gui basically, an excellent gui; C-Kermit is a shell
like eterm, the shell in emacs.  Technically, a shell is a gui, but
what I mean is there are alot less graphical overhead for Kermit.

Try C-Kermit, its the oldest and therefore the most compatible communications
software.  
Kermit is continually updated as well, so don't think its "ancient" and
therefore "bad."

Good luck, and please tell me how it all works out.
