I've always had this problem with minicom. I can't connect to some
devices (switchs and routers mostly) using minicom unless I reboot them
while minicom is running. I've tried sending breaks and resetting the
modem and hitting my enter key a billion times but nothing works except
a bounce.

Is this a know issue and does anyone know of some way I can get minicom
to connect without having to reset the device? TIA.
