Well, I think I did originally:

Key points that apparently got lost:

1. No curses. I am NOT asking for a curses based program. Quite the contrary.
2. I am connecting via a null-modem cable to a serial port that has a 
getty. Ie. I can't get a network connection.  In fact, that is usually WHY 
I want to connect via the serial port.

Maybe I gave too much detail. Perhaps a simpler way to put it is there 
something easier to use than minicom? Actually, as I type this, I think I 
retreived an answer from somewhere deep in the recesses of my mind -- kermit.

I probably haven't used kermit in 10-15 years but IIRC, the interface is 
what I'm looking for.
