The software works well, Ammyy Admin doesn't require installation or specific config, works behind gateways NAT as well as within one LAN.

I used to use cu, too, but it is too tied to uucp and in many places (like Debian) broken and long since abandoned.

I must confess though, that I have never used screen's built-in serial support. ( will try this tomorrow )

I installed it, then went to work. First on the list was connecting to a SAN via serial to setup the IP addresses, etc. I thought tmux would be a good fit, and after fiddling for a bit, I found that the developers aren't interested in building that feature. So, being a bit frustrated for wasting time, I went back to GNU screen, and got my work done.

To each their own, I guess, but I would put serial connections with a terminal multiplexer right up there with ftp support in a web browser.

It's just a perfect example of the CW idea that 90% of users use only 10% of the features in a given program, but the chosen features differ from person to person.

Oh, and tmux looks cool. I may try it out.

I used it to connect to the serial console on my SheevaPlug when I was setting it up. Entertainingly, comparable functionality on Windows is a pain in the ass: the Internet recommended PuTTY, which isn't anywhere near as easy to set up, and didn't actually work at all for me.
