I have a Windows 7 machine which is connected to a linux prototyping board over a serial connection.
Now, I want to transfer files to Linux from Windows. The Linux machine does not have an additional network connection except for serial and the programs
tmux are not installed. Moreover, the
serial python lib is also not installed.
Now I thought I could open PuTTY on Windows, connect to the Linux machine. Then run
nohup cat /dev/ttyMDF2 > receiving-file and then close PuTTY on Windows to open the serial port up for connection again. Then run
copy test.file /B COM4: /B on the Windows machine to send the file. Unfortunately, the file stays empty on the Linux machine.
How can I successfully transfer files to my Linux machine over a serial connection?
