There is minicom which comes on the Slackware distributions. I've had
problems with it on the latest version of Slackware (2.1) and have heard
that others have had problems as well. But it used to work beautifully. 

There is also Seyon if you like an Xwindows interface.

And last but not least, there is kermit which is tried and true.

all of these are available on
