I assume the modem is not a winmodem. If it has any status
echo "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" > /dev/ttyS4
and look for any activity. also check out the setserial
Hope this is of use
When I created the port, ttyS4, Vectorlinux hung at a screen showing, "configuring ttyS4. during bootup.
So I removed it. From reading the PCMCIA Howto, I think it stated that the modem should pick the first available port and make sure to have /dev/modem configured, which it is.
I"m still stuck on trying to configure this PCMCIA Xircom combo card. I have no idea exactly how to get this working.
Need more suggestions/ideas!
