Ubuntu Serial ports setup

Hi guys,

Setup:
- PC with Ubuntu 10.10
- 1 built-in serial port
- 1 PCI card with two serial ports.
- An application that acquires data from devices that have serial ports.
- Application serial port requirements: Baud Rate: 115200, Stop Bits: 2, Parity: Odd, Flow Control: none

This setup is perfectly working under Windows with this three serial ports.

Under Ubuntu only the built-in serial port (ttyS0) is acquiring data, but the two serial ports (ttyS1 and ttyS2) from the PCI cards.

Terminal Output:

root@ubuntu:~# sudo dmesg | grep tty
[    0.000000] console [tty0] enabled
[    1.797328] serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
[    1.797635] 00:07: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
[    1.818658] 0000:03:01.0: ttyS1 at I/O 0xdce0 (irq = 17) is a ST16650V2
[    1.839640] 0000:03:01.1: ttyS2 at I/O 0xdce8 (irq = 18) is a ST16650V2



What can I do in order to configure those settings for the two serial ports from the PCI card?

Thanks

Looks like ttyS1  and ttyS2 are detected correctly by Linux.

Might be a handshake problem.
Try using the "minicom" program to verify connectivity (set handshake to none - <Ctrl-A> <O> )

Hi DonConsolio,

Isn't minicom a terminal like Hyperterminal?
I used gtkterm (a GUI based terminal), and I was able to verify the connectivity.

I only need to change the tty1 and tty2 to meet my application's requirements.


Thanks.

What is the your application's way of setting handshake?
Try setting handshake to something like none/no/ignore.
