Connect to routers, servers, firewalls, industrial control and IoT devices with ease.
See every byte received in raw hex format allowing you to work with devices lacking a text-based interface. A new send panel allows you transmit data in hex format too.
Serial is now a full featured SSH client with a comprehensive built-in identity manager and the ability to organize and group your favorite hosts.
Serial is a full-featured terminal emulator supporting Xterm, VT102, and ANSI terminal controls. This allows you to navigate the menu-driven interfaces found in many routers, firewalls and switches and use text based programs including emacs, vi, and nano as if you were connected over the network.
Serial includes built-in, reliable support for almost every serial device on the market, sparing you the hassle of finding, installing, and updating drivers.
Finally! An app by someone who understands
Serial apps don't need to be flashy, but this one has 2 killer features that most serial terminal apps totally miss that are a massive convenience for network device programming: 1. An easy way to send serial break 2. paste buffering so that copy/paste into a terminal won't overflow the serial buffer and drop your connection. I've been programming network devices for 20 years and the paste buffer in this app is the first time i have seen this implemented. No more terminal session drops half-way through pasting in configuration directives! No more guessing how much i can paste without dropping my session! 5 stars. If you program equipment via RS232 this app is better than anythign i've used prior on any platform for the specific reasons above. — throAU
Al round an amazingly written app - even supports (most) of those cheaper eBay USB to Serial adapters... Has been very useful in the field so many times that I rarely have to take two laptops with me these days! Well worth the investment! — Dave’s Apples

If you work on networking gear you WILL LOVE THIS! It buffers what you are pasting, so that you can paste huge amounts of text, and it will paste one line at a time, and wait for the terminal to respond before entering in the next line! No more having to paste 5-10 lines at a time so that the switch/firewall/routers buffers don’t overload! Love it!!! — Fthvcg
