vt52 terminal emulation
Posted on 2003-03-06
I have an application running on a remote computer that provides information on the serial port. I connect with a Linux machine on ttyS0 to remote computer serial port.
I use kermit to establish the communication on the serial port.
If I connect from an x-term started with vt52 emulation things are fine, I encounter the expected behaviour. On the other hand from a Bash shell the data is continuosly filling the screen, with a feling of staricase effect.
Before I run kermit I execute this:
I compared both termcap entries (x-free an vt52 entries) and they are identical.
What could be the issue that makes the difference?
The x-term is a temporary option since on the monitoring computer I don't have X installed.
