Hi All. I have here a couple of FreeBSD boxes with a USB to serial RS232 cable going from USB0 on hostA to COM1 on hostB.
On hostA I recompiled the kernel incuding the following 2 lines: # USB com devices device ucom device uplcom Unplugging and plugging back in on hostA the USB end, this is what I get on the messages file: ... hostA /kernel: uplcom0: at uhub0 port 2 (addr 2) disconnected ... hostA /kernel: uplcom0: detached ... hostA /kernel: uhub0: port error, restarting port 2 ... hostA /kernel: uplcom0: Prolific Technology PL2303 Serial adapter (ATEN/IOGEAR UC232A), rev 1.10/2.02, addr 2 On hostA:/etc/remote I created the following line: usb0:dv=/dev/usb0:br#9600:pa=none: However, I can't have tip working. It tries to connect and immediately disconnect! hostA:~ # tip usb0 connected Hangup. [EOT] On hostB everything is fine, since if I use a nullmodem serial cable between the 2 boxes, I get the login: prompt from COM1 at hostA straight away. What am I missing?!? Thanks & regards.
