How can I use minicom to manually access a networked device?

The minicom tool (included with many Linux distributions) is a terminal program that uses tty devices.

When using minicom with a TTYredirector tty device, configuration is simplest if you name your TTYredirector devices ptyp0, ptyp1, and so on. This is a naming convention that minicom recognizes by default. You can then use the TTYredirector device with commands like this:

    % minicom -p ptyp0
