Well, on their old modem routers at least, they expected the first sync 
character within bare seconds. The selection process in Minicom takes 
too long.  It isn't much better in Seyon, either, but there at least you 
can make a button that already includes the filename and path, so with a 
little tweaking, you can get it to work.

PS: From the way these messages queued up in my inbox, I suspect some of 
you might not have your clocks set right...
