    I've just built a lab to help me on the road to CCNA and was wondering what software you guys use/recommend for serial console access?

    I know about HyperTerminal on Windows but am specifically looking for software running under Linux. So far I've used Minicom ('used' as in connected to my devices!) but was wondering if there are any 'better' alternatives?

    Cheers,

    Mathew

    Minicom is what I used for a router/dialer. Seemed to be OK.

    Although I felt I was in a time-warp. It is years since I used to use Telix - at one time that was my favorite terminal program!
