Hi,

does anybody know if it is possible to display whatever is received on the serial port in cli? I tried "type ser:" but it did not do the trick. I'm certain there was input because I could see it in ncomm.

Do you mean something like "sashimi" (SER: to CON:)?

Never heard of sashimi before, from what I read it somehow captures the amigas own serial output, locally?

That's not really what I had in mind. I want to display serial output from one amiga in the console window of another amiga.

@dalton:
It should work. Are you sure that the serial settings are OK on the remote side? It should be the same as what you set in Serial Prefs on the Amiga (even handshake/etc). Additonally high speeds (anything above 19200) might not work really well with low-end Amigas and stock Commodore serial.device/SER:, especially on low end machines.

You nailed it; one side was set to handshake, the other wasn't. Thanks!

Seems Type doesn't output until it gets an EOF though, or some other code...

I think type or SER: device (I wonder which) does buffered input/output? So it either works as per line (LF character being the delimiter) or it just needs its buffer filled, before it returns anything.
