Thanks to everyone who replied.

Q: How to start an interactive session (i/o redirected to the terminal) to a
character device (eg: /dev/ttySX)?

A: use tip, minicom, kermit and many others. Actually tip seems to be the
smallest one and just enough for any testing purpose. tip /device directly
uses character device defaults. tip hardwire (default mapped to /dev/ttyS0)
on some systems.
