Hi Dirk & all,

This one is using the GDB internal protocol. You can control the
execution of the program using GDB as if you are debugging a "normal"
> serial is for reading and writing data from and into the node.
And this one is using the TinyOS internal serial protocol. Avrora will
create a server socket to which you can connect using TinyOS'
SerialForwarder (as you connect to a real mote connected to USB or
RS232). On the mote's program you have to use
SerialAMSenderC/SerialAMReceiverC send or receive data via the serial
port. The data type is user defined - for TinyOS is just bytes...
