So, I have this school project to build a SMS server, now I don't want to use any other software like kannel or similar software, but rather interact with the GSM mode through AT commands instead.

Back inte the days when I used to struggle with old Serial modems i used vgetty tty01, then setserial. I've googled it several times but to no good, all I got is that I should use the command cu instead since it gives greater power over parity, data bits etc.


Does anybody have any solution on how to connect to this modem? It's supposed to be on ttyS1.

Thanks for listening and eventually helping.

Cutecom looks rather featureless but might do what you want: http://linuxwave.blogspot.com/2009/06/hyper-terminal-for-linux.html

It looks rather good actually, the main issue then would be that I don't have any window manager installed.

I just found out though that the GSM modem is discovered like a regular modem, so if I instead find some information on how to through a tty interact with a regular modem I might just get this to work!

The link I posted also discussed minicom, a CLI (alternative).

Yeah, Minicom gave me a CLI now, but still nothing at all. At the bottom it says offline. I'm thinking I might have to go back a few steps and check my IRQ setting and assignment to the tty as well. I mean, it doesn't find a respons at all from the modem so I figure this is BIOS related perhaps.
