-[title] Setup Terminal Emulator
-[* icon_note] To set up the network connection on the Duet, we must use a terminal emulation program to talk to the Duet via the USB cable. We recommend using [https://sourceforge.net/projects/y-a-terminal/|YAT] in Windows. This is because 3D printer host programs (such as [http://www.pronterface.com/|Pronterface]) and other terminal emulation programs send all characters in uppercase, and your WiFi settings (SSID and password ) are case sensitive.
-[* blue] Windows users: [https://sourceforge.net/projects/y-a-terminal/|Download YAT here.] Install YAT using default options.
- [* black] Setup YAT to use <LF> as the end of line character. Go to "Terminal" Menu -> "Settings" -> "Text Settings" -> "EOL sequence:" set to <LF>
-[* blue] Mac OSX Users: you can connect to your Duet using the built-in 'screen' terminal application, but we recommend using a GUI application such as [https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/serialtools/id611021963|SerialTools from the AppStore].
- [* black] Open Applications > Utilities > Terminal. Run ***ls /dev/tty.**** Copy the result that has USB in the name. For example; ***/dev/tty.usbmodem1411***
- [* black] Run ***screen /dev/tty.usbmodem1411 115200***. Replace "usbmodem1411" with the result you received. You should see a blank screen. Hit enter and you should see OK returned. You are connected successfully.
-[* icon_caution] If you get an error, ''Sorry, could not find a PTY.'' unplug the USB, plug it back in and try again.
-[* icon_note] Some users have reported issues with YAT under Windows 8 not connecting properly. If YAT does not work, try [http://www.pronterface.com/|Pronterface] to confirm the computer can talk to the Duet
+[title] Selecting a Terminal Emulator
+[* icon_note] To set up the network connection on the Duet, we must use a terminal emulation program to talk to the Duet via the USB cable.
+[* icon_note] We have recommendations for what software to use on Windows, Mac OS and Linux. This is because 3D printer host programs (such as [http://www.pronterface.com/|Pronterface]) and other terminal emulation programs may send all characters in uppercase, which causes problems when making changes to WiFi settings, as the SSID and password are case sensitive.
+[* blue] Windows users: we recommend [https://sourceforge.net/projects/y-a-terminal/|downloading YAT.] Install YAT using default options.
+[* blue] Mac OSX users: we recommend using [https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/serialtools/id611021963|SerialTools from the AppStore]. You can also connect to your Duet using the built-in 'screen' terminal application.
+[* blue] Linux users: we recommend using CuteCom, but you can also use Terminal-based tools such as Minicom, or the built-in 'screen' command.
+[* icon_note] The following three steps explain how to setup a terminal emulator to connect to your Duet, for each operating system.
