I need a solution
all ports are busy when trying to use the tip command
Hi, I am trying to use a modem from a solaris 8 server. I am using the tip command. I am getting all ports are busy. How can I find which port the modem is being used. Is this the problem
You can use the GUI "admintool" to make your modem "dial in ONLY"
admintool ->Browse ->Serial Ports, then click on your modem device (typically port a)
>>all ports are busy.
it means either that your serial port is configured incorrectly, perhaps for dial in instead of dial out, or that there is a more fundamental problem in communicating with the port. In this case, have a look at Celeste Stokely's Tutorial on Solaris 2.x Modems & Terminals which contains a wealth of useful information about modems.
Have a look at the following doc to learn more details about modem setup.
Suppose you have a sun-server without gfx-card inside, the console is set by default to /dev/term/a (serial port a) which means you can't connect a modem for dial-out at port A
If your modem is conneted to port B you should use
and probably adapt speed settings in /etc/remote
A good config file to loo through is your /etc/remotes file. It is where you can define all of you tip connections, and see what the defaults are, unless you have changed them.
