We are using a Linux PC to communicate with the ChipSHOUTER and we have been able to successfully send commands and receive responses using the shouter-console.py Python script.
However, I would also like to use minicom to communicate with the ChipSHOUTER but I haven’t been able to determine the correct settings that allow any of the commands to be accepted. At this point, no matter what I command I enter after I hit the Carriage Return it displays the entire help menu with all the commands. It doesn’t seem to be recognizing anything I’m typing and just keeps showing the help menu. I’m confident I have the right serial port settings (115,200 baud 8N1) and I also have the following minicom settings:
Hardware Flow Control: No
Software Flow Control: No
Add linefeed: Yes
Local echo: Yes
Add carriage return: Yes
Terminal Emulation: VT102
Is there any reason why I can’t use minicom to communicate with the ChipSHOUTER instead of using the shouter-console.py script?
Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to your response.
