Serial port access through Terminal in Leopard Server
Authored by: h3rbz on Sep 03, '08 04:05:25AM

I just got a Aten UC-232A to use with my MacBook Pro for connecting to devices, such as network switches and power switches. The device is named /dev/tty.UC-232AC.

I'm using it with minicom and it works great. I have been using minicom on other platforms, so I had no trouble with operating it. For those who are new to minicom, basic setup is simple. Do:

$ sudo minicom -s

Folow the setup instructions and adjust the config for the device you plan on connecting to, save and exit. To use minicom, just do:

$ sudo minicom

Running as root may not be needed, but this is my first try and it does the job.

Just sharing this experience, so others may benefit from it.
