    Alternate software to (rs485 terminal) Docklight software in linux.

    I Want to read data from a sensor which has RS485 interface .As the computer has only usb port ,I used RS485 to usb converter.In windows i am getting the response data when i send request data.When using in linux i tried minicom software ,but I am not getting the response data when i send request data.

    It shows the ftdi driver for the converter.

    i need to clarify is the problem with ftdi driver or minicom ?

    do I need to change any setting in the driver as minicom settings ?
