Terminal Emulation Software

Hi there -

We are in the process of retiring an older HP-UX 10.20 system that is used to collect data from some of our ocean moorings. We are replacing it with a HP-UX 11i system. One of the requirements is that there needs to be some async comm package on the HP-UX box to communicate with the moorings. On the 10.20 system, we used pcomm but this doesn't build under HP-UX 11i and I'm having a difficult time finding any public domain packages. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Shalom Pat,

Works great with Windows and HP-UX and Linux.

Price is right.

Re: Terminal Emulation Software

Your 10.20 version of Pcomm should run under 11.11 (Of course, 11i can mean many things which is why you should use it to identify your OS) but in any event, I have used Pcomm+ for many years. Both a PA-RISC binary and source are available here.

If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Hi Allen,

PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Win32 and Unix platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator.

Download it from

Re: Terminal Emulation Software

cu is supplied with any HP-UX UUCP package.

If you prefer a bit more luxury try Kermit from
http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/ckermit.html

There is also an X application called seyon, e.g. from
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/serialcomm/dialout/seyon-2.20c.tar.gz
but this is hard to automate...

I'd try kermit :-)

My 2 cents,
Armin
And now for something completely different...

Re: Terminal Emulation Software

Hello Pat,

While PuTTY is an excellent terminal program it does not support async communications.

You might try minicom or one of the programs that Armin suggested. Cu might be your best bet if you're tying to script it. Minicom has macro support, but I've only used it interactively.

Good luck,
Tom

Re: Terminal Emulation Software

The scripting capabilities of Pcomm+ are really its selling point for you. Pcomm+ commands are a superset of Pcomm commands so that if you already have existing script they should work.
