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.
