Is there a terminal program app that will talk thru the acc port?
This is probably a long stretch, but I'm wondering if it's possible to communicate with an external USB device (like a modem) through the iPad's accessory port. (I have the iPad camera kit which adapts a USB cable to the port)..
I've searched for terminal programs at the App Store, but all they have are internet Apps like VNC, telnet and SSL etc..
PS.. I don't want to do any jailbreaking.. Thanks in advance.
Yes - its called Get Console and its in the App store
The Get Console app uses the Redpark C2-RJ45 cable plugged into the 30 pin iPad port and provides a cutdown VT100 terminal emulation. Its designed primarily for network engineers to connect to the serial console ports of network gear with their iPads - but seems to work with other stuff. No Jailbreaking required.
You might need to get a DB9-RJ45 dongle if you want DB9 presentation. Search for get-console in google or "Cisco Serial" in the Itunes store.
