Minicom allows you to store and recall configuration files in a quite handy way.
When started without options then it looks for the default configuration files
/etc/minicom/minirc.dfl or ~/.minirc.dfl
These files can be easily created by starting minicom in setup mode
sudo minicom -s
and after having configured what you need, selecting the option “save setup as dfl”.
If you are root then the configuration will be saved into /etc/minicom/minirc.dfl,
otherwise into your home directory into .minirc.dfl .
Interesting is the possibility to save named custom configurations.
If you are root and you select the option “save setup as..” then you will be able to save a named custom configuration
The configuration file will be saved into the directory /etc/minicom as minirc.<name> (e.g.: minirc.alix) and can be easily recalled by invoking minicom followed by the name you gave the configuration
will start minicom with the configuration stored into the file /etc/minicom/minirc.alix
BTW, here are the settings I’m using to connect to the alix board:
