    Hello,

    I'm an IT/Telecom techie that does a lot of work on Cisco hardware, iDirect satellite modems, and all kind's of stuff that require RS-232 serial interface. I have an ATEN UC232A USB to serial converter that I've been using successfully on my XP and Win7 laptops for the past few years. no I have an Asus TF101 (Transformer) tablet with the Keyboad accessory which provides me with 2 USB ports. Can I use the ATEN UC232U converter with it, and if yes, is there a terminal emulator software that is simple like Hyper Terminal or Tera Term?

    PS. I have Android 3.2 on my TF101

    best regards,

    Stay away from Apple! ;P

    No seriously though I've been searching a bit for this my self without any luck. Im getting my Asus Transformer Prime on monday and it would be great to be able to use it connect to switches and routers.

    That beeing said, I know there is apps and accessories for Apple IOS that does this job. So I would be supprised if there aren't something for Android as well

    I don't like pointing folks away from Android Forums, but this sounds like something that they may be able to handle over at XDA forums.
