- Cisco serial consoles
The idea is to have 1 serial adapter that takes care of all of your DB9 / null modem / goofy pinouts in one package.
Code
====
IDE / Environment
-----------------
This project was developed using stino (Sublime Text 2 plugin). It works slightly differently (read: more powerful) than the standard Arduino IDE. This project may or may not build under the Arduino IDE.
Configuration
-------------
The `Project.h` and `Project.cpp` files define the pinouts in use, Arduino pinout and a number of other items that may vary between builds. Please read through these [short] files and update the pinouts, addresses and anything else that may be different before uploading to your Arduino.
