MaxiCom is a simple serial port terminal emulator for the GNOME desktop. The primary goals of the project are simplicity and usability. MaxiCom currently implements terminal emulation and X/YMODEM file transfers.
nauta is yet another serial browser, primarily for GPS receivers. It consists of several distinct
applications (like ZboxZ), so it is expected to be rather slow (but usable), hard to install, and flexible. It also supports DGPS.
acgtools is a driver for the ACG HF MultiISO RFID reader written
entirely in Python and including several developer tools, including
EEPROM backup/edit/restoration for enabling some of the more exotic
features supported by this hardware. There are also sample applications,
notably an e-Passport reader.
vmodemd is a telnet server designed to run old DOS BBS systems and door games. It listens for incoming TCP connections on a defined port, does a minimal telnet handshake if needed, and then starts to proxy all data to a PTY which is bound to a dosemu virtual serial port. vmodemd supports any number of virtual modems, can display customized banners if all modems are busy, can terminate a serial app when a telnet connection is unexpectedly dropped, and run custom scripts before passing control to dosemu, allowing you to pass relevant data like incoming IP address to the DOS app.
DispDump is a utility that gives you remote control
of a PC running MS-DOS. The screen image
(currently text mode only) is taken from the
graphics card and transferred to another computer
via a serial link and displayed there using any serial
link terminal emulation software.
Dursamvad serves as a simple testing tool for RS232 communication. It can display the received bytes, show the status of modem lines, and monitor the communications of two devices. It is possible to use USB-to-RS232 adapters with it.
SerialBridge bridges data across two serial ports across a Palm device. It's mainly aimed at bridging the Wireless Modem and a USB/Serial port on a Treo.
comhit is a scriptable serial communications
program. It runs well in the background for tasks
such as cronjobs. There is no user interactive
vt52vnc is a VNC viewer which can be used on prehistoric green
monochromatic terminals called vdt52s, which are capable of vector
graphics. It is functional and nicely displays X on the terminal, but
without the routines for dithering, compression, and password
support. Its architecture provides a framework to add those features
The SCSI Terminal Server daemon is a patch against the Digi EtherLite drivers which allows support for the Digi/CentralData SCSI Terminal Server products.
