Can someone suggest a good freeware terminal program that they have had success with working with AVR USART. I have been trying Realterm, but I have had problems with it. Windows XP.

What kind of problems do you have? (I don't use it however)

Can you use Hyperterminal? (comes with windows, I guess you know) Even though it is not the best, unless you need some fancy stuff then it should work.

I've had a heck of a time getting it to talk to the USART, but now I think that I have clock problems that I have to work through.

Another vote here for Teraterm but also note that there was am long thread in "Off Topic" in which folks recommended the various terminals they use so fo a balanced picture I'd search out that thread.

Do a search for Bray's terminal--its great.

When in the dark remember-the future looks brighter than ever.   I look forward to being able to predict the future!

I installed Bray and it works like a champ. Definitly the best of the bunch. I never did figure out real terminal. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi,
Do any of these above terminals support ANSI term command set on a UDP connection?
HyperTerminal almost gets there with TCP but not UDP.

Neil.

Kind Regards,

Neil Wrightson.

Hi John,
Seasons greetings to you.
I have not seen ucon before but at $795 it's a bit beyond my xmas present price.

We will have to catch up for coffee someday :)

Neil.

Kind Regards,

Neil Wrightson.

HUH??? That $795.00 more that I paid for it! :shock: and the author is such a nice guy that would bend backwards to help out with bugs. I did ask him for some changes to make things a bit more flexible for my use and he did them almost immediately. I guess one can strecth the friendship but if one uses it as it is, and it's very good, he won't get upset.

You can get it here http://microcross.com/html/micro... half way down the page. I just downloaded the latest version V6.7. Of course I keep the older versions too, I have the unofficial V6.8, so perhaps the one on the website is the official release with the changes I asked for and bug removals.

BLIPS (projects section here) does UDP with terminal emulation, but just bare bones terminal, not ANSI or vt100

$800 purchase price is a bit at odds with the OP's freeware goal.

Putty. Works on Windows, works on Linux. It's all I use these days. Spend the time to properly learn to use it.

I like cats, too. Let's exchange recipes.

I tried putty with a serial port. When I click OPEN, there's a beep but nothing else happens. Tried two known-good serial ports. Nothing in the docs.

Try docklight it has everything.

ASCII/HEX/Binary view/sending, predefined string (full strings or partially defined), TCP/UDP terminal, of course RS232 terminal, scripting to set automatic answer/action to some strings..

 

And free version gives you all you need.
