I have a XBee device attached to the ttyMDF1 interface on an Intel Edison board running Yocto linux. I need to configure the XBee by sending AT commands to it. I have tried to open a getty /dev/ttyMDF1 but nothing happens, same using screen, also tried with echo "+++" > /dev/ttyMDF1 and cat /dev/ttyMDF1 with no luck eighter.

Any ideas about what I may be doing wrong or which program I could install using opkg?. Communication with the XBee should start by sending a +++ sequence and it should reply with an OK

  • you need to set the speed stty -F /dev/ttyMDF1 115200 or use minicom – Rui F Ribeiro Feb 15 '16 at 14:35
