Hi all,

I've been trying to use screen and minicom to access the serial port of 
powerconnect switches but it's always really jerky and only some of the 
text displays. Using hyperterminal it's all fine, v frustrating. Any ideas?

I've been following guides like:-


and I'm ssh'ing into an ubuntu poweredge server using iterm2 which has 
the serial link to the switch.
