I'm bootstrapping some servers over serial. I've been using PuTTY on Windows, but I'd really rather use Linux.
In PuTTY, I can simply select
serial and enter the baud rate. A serial window pops up and away I go, I can login and start configuring.
PuTTY works on Linux, but I'd rather use a command-line application if I can. It seems that
minicom is a common Linux CLI serial client, so I though I'd try it. However, it all seems a good deal more complicated. (So many bells and whistles!)
How can I get
minicom to do the same things PuTTY does?
