  lizby said  The PicoMite would have to have OPTION SERIAL CONSOLE uartapin, uartbpin. These pins would be connected to a USB/Serial module on the PC.


Unless there is something "special" about MMB4W I don't think you need that. The MMB4W program can just open the COM port directly to the PicoMite USB and pretend to be a terminal. This is how gonzo which I use for my PicoMite development works on MMB4L - though its terminal emulation is a bit "buggy" currently.

Note that MMB4L has an advantage over MMB4W here because it can leverage the Linux console which is already VT/XTerm compatible.

Best wishes,
