NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade termite -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade termite -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Termite is an easy to use and easy to configure RS232 terminal. It uses an interface similar to that of "messenger" or "chat" programs, with a large window that contains all received data and an edit line for typing in strings to transmit. Highlights of the utility are the ease of installation (possibly with pre-configured settings) using a heuristic search for the appropriate COM port and, as was mentioned, its user-friendliness.

Other features are:

  • Plug-in interface for pre-processing or alternative views of the data, logging received data to a file, adding a toolbar to Termite, keyboard macros, and other functionality that you may think of.
  • A history of commands that you typed, with auto-completion.
  • Resizeable main window, with a "keep window on top" option, multilingual user interface.
  • Ability to run with pre-configured settings from a read-only medium (no installation is necessary).
  • Support for non-standard Baud rates (MIDI, DMX512).
  • Different colouring for transmitted and received data (blue=transmitted, green=received).
  • Data can be forwarded between two RS232 ports.
  • Search dialog for transmitted/received text (right-click pop-up menu).
  • Save or print the contents of the transmitted/received text (right-click pop-up menu).
