Hey folks,

I'm new the mac's and one of the tools I would like to have available on the mac is some kind of terminal application. My windows experience has mostly been with SecureCRT. I know mac's have a terminal.app application but is there anything available with the organization and configuration of SecureCRT? Also is there a 'recommended' usb->rs232 adapter for mac's?

Thanks

Prolific USB - RS-232 converters work very well under OS X. I use the "screen" command from the terminal. Do an "ls -l | more" of your /dev directory and find the device file for your USB - RS-232 converter (mine is /dev/usbserial). Execute the screen command like so: "screen /dev/usbserial 9600", where 9600 is whatever baud rate your console port is set at. Will probably bring up a blank screen first, don't forget to press "Enter" to be dropped to a prompt. Works like a charm without any extra software.

I just went through the same thing and ended up getting a Tripplite Keyspan USA-19HS adapter and used the screen command as stated above.
