That 'offline' may mean something. Do you have a null modem
connecting DTR from your device to DCR on the PC comm port?
If not, can you loop the comm port's own DTR back to DCD
so it looks like a connection is active?  If you use
kermit instead of minicom you can use 'set carrier off'
before the connect command to make it open the port
without waiting for DCD to be active.  Minicom might have
a similar command but I don't know what it is.
