Console flow control

With no flow control on the console port, it's common to overrun the port when sending large config files from a terminal emulator. Is there any way to avoid this, other than manually breaking up the file and sending a chunk at a time, maybe by adjusting the console buffer size, if possible?

When I run into such problems, I configure the terminal emulation program to insert a 100-ms pause between lines... takes a bit longer but works.

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

Most terminal emulator programs (like Hyperterm, or TeraTerm, or SecurCRT, etc) have a setting where you can specify character delay and or line delay. If you use these parameters to specify some delay you can send the config file (even very large configs) without over-running the console.

Re: Console flow control

Thanks for the suggestions; so far, I haven't found such an option in my emulator program (CRT) but have asked the vendor about it. Maybe that's an incentive for buying SecureCRT.
