ATEN usb-serial adapter

  • I couldn't get the below driver working in El Capitan, then I found this app which worked with no fuss - Serial
  • driver for Mavericks - this driver is the one I've used with good success in the past, but it does't seem to work in Yosemite yet. But this one seems to work in Yosemite just fine. Remember to reboot after installing the driver.

Break Sequence

The break sequence for “screen” is to use Ctrl-A and then Ctrl-B. The Ctrl-A shifts the focus back to the screen process (away from the serial console) and the Ctrl-B issues the break sequence.

You may need to break more than once. This is done by Ctrl-A, Ctrl-B, Ctrl-B, Ctrl-B.
