Configure a 2 Port Dual Profile PCI-Express UART Serial Card in SCO OpenServer 6

Dan Kaib asked
Can anyone tell me how to configure a StarTech 2-Port Dual Profile PCI-Express UART Serial Card in SCO OpenServer 6 on a Dell PowerEdge T110?

The Bios shows the card in Slot 3 with an IRQ of 15.
When I try to configure the card in SCO6 it shows the standard 2 individual ports on COM1 and COM2 and does not have an add option.

I think it has to be configured through the DCU in SCO6 but I have no clue on how that should be done.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Because there are no SCO drivers for that card, you're sunk and you'll have to buy a different card; something like this series: http://www.digi.com/products/serialcards/digineo.jsp#overview
You might want to look at an ethernet terminal server.  the digi line supports using "realport" which makes the serial ports on the TS look and act like local serial ports.



All of the responses are correct based on what works, what does not work, and an option to try.
