I am trying to use
minicom to communicate with an ESP8266 Wifi chip using AT commands. I log into
minicom and I type command "AT". The normal answer of the chip would be to send "OK" back to
minicom. However, after typing "AT", once I type "Enter" the cursor goes back to the beginning of the line and nothing happens. It is as though the command had not been sent.
I log into
sudo chmod a+rwx /dev/ttyUSB0 sudo minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB0 -b 115200
In the Arduino IDE Serial Monitor, I am able to communicate with the chip by setting baud = 115200 and "Both NL & CR". When sending command "AT", the chip sends back answer "OK". I am trying to reproduce the same in
Any idea why the command doesn't get sent ?
I saw in many
minicom tutorials that command prompt
cmd> should appear. Yet it does not appear on my screen. Maybe this is an indication that
minicom is only in "listening" mode, and not in "waiting for command from the user" mode ?
