[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.] InstallOther terminal emulation programs may work, eg PuTTY, but we've found YAT using default optionsthe most reliable.

[* blue] Linux users: we recommend using CuteCom, but you can also use Terminal-based tools such as Minicom, or the built-in 'screen' command.
