Dear all,

  Is there any software which is similar to minicom for linux which can be run in Solaris 2.6 x86 so that  we do not need handle so many configuration file at all?


Thanks a lot!

Dear sir,

  The function tip is similiar minicom for linux or telix for dos?  Will it have a text mode or graphic mode interface for the user to setup the modem or serial port?

Thanks a lot!

textmode, either via command-line arguments and options, or configuration files (using those for uucp)

You mean only the command-line argument!?  It is different from telix software?

it's tip not telix ;-)

You may preset some (probably all) parts of configuration via command-line, but you also may change it from within tip.
tip has no GUI like telix or minicom, it just supports a simple prompt to accept further commands (designed to work on any terminal, even remote ones).

Why don't you download the Source and try compiling it? I am quite sure it will work without changes. If you want, I can email you the sources, they are quite small.
