    DOS:

    echo hello>com1:

    Linux (RH9)

    echo hello>/dev/ttys0

    will send the characters hello to the first serial port

    Years back, Procomm Plus for DOS was my terminal emulator of choice. You can download it now from here:
    http://solarflow.dyndns.org/pcplus/

    The site also explains how to setup Linux to run DOS programs. I haven't tried it myself tho...

    You could write one yourself very simply in VB.

    Look for inpout32.dll

    PM myself or Tampabay if you need a hand.
