Hi all,

I am having difficulty to setup the connection from my Linux to communicate with Ms-Windows via a " serial port ". what i have done is:

Type of cable: NULL CABLE

* setup a linux virtual terminal to accepting connection from serial port ttyS1 here is my "/etc/initab" look like.

s2:123456:respawn:/sbin/agetty -L ttyS1 -f /etc/issue 9600 vt100

root%:dmesg | grep tty*
ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
ttyS01 at 0x02f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A


* The same in Ms-windows, I am using Hyperterm to establish the connection corresponding to the ports and terminal setup in linux.
Windows setup:
Port: Com1
Configure: VT100 9600-8-N-1



here is what happened when i connected them together:

I recieved the linux's login prompt on windows hyperterm. But then as soon as I type in my username and press enter. The Hyperterm is freezing up. I got absolutly no responding back after that. What did I do wrong?.
I am very desperate to get this working. Can someone please point out any solution for this issue , I would be very apperciated.

Once again Many thanks for your help.
