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)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
