» A terminal emulator for CygWin. The suggestion for screen didn't work for me (permissions issues), however using git for picocom and just compiling/running works great! In case that page goes away, it's this:

git clone https://github.com/npat-efault/picocom; cd picocom && make

./picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyS7
