Re: Serial port functionality testing

minicomm -s
Select 'Serial port setup'  menu and change the following
Serial Device to your comm port(/dev/ttyS0/1)
Bps/Par/Bits to 9600 8N1
Set the Hardware Flow Control to 'No'
Set the Software Flow Control to 'Yes;
Save the setup as defauls and chose Exit
Now you will be in the minicomm screen
Short the 2 and 3 pins of your seral port and type some thing from the
keybord you should see the typed text in the screen

Hope this will help
