I put together a netStix and a waySmall STUART. The gumstix is connected
to my host computer through a serial-null cable. I also followed the
directions on the wiki to allow Kermit to connect to the gumstix, and to
transfer files to the gumstix using Kermit.
PS: I turned flow control off.
Thanks, Tony. I rebooted my host machine as well as the gumstix and then
I was able to connect to my gumstix again. This was really strange
because rebooting the gumstix alone did not resolve the issue.
