    Can anyone recommend a program that I can use to do some serial port work?

    I just need to config the port on my PC then send a few characters (inc ESC)
    either from a file or by typing on kbd.

  3. Since you don't give away your preferred OS, I assume you are talking
    about some flavour of Window$. In this case HyperTerminal is the first
    choice, since it comes with the OS.

    In case you are using something like a half-decent OS (Linux comes to
    mind), minicom seems to be prudent.

    HTH,

    Actually I spent two hours yesterday looking for what I wanted and then
    found it in 30 mins today (and yes it was using google).
