Serial setup with C-Kermit

When you work with embedded devices (e.g. SabreLite, Arduino, Raspberry Pi) you often need to work over a serial port, e.g. to customize the Barebox or U-Boot boot loader.

On Linux, people often use “minicom” for this. Other options are “Putty” (yes, it’s not a Windows-only program, try “apt-get install putty”) or even the ancient C-Kermit. Surprisingly I found that Kermit suits my work-flow the best, when properly configured.
