301-1000-14 is the actual part number, must be obsolete.

How do I get this firmware? What is it called?

Opps, I should have read your output better. io_edgeport 2-2:1.0:


I have a similar device on one single Fedora system. I'll have to look at that more closely. I'm going to study up on this now. My box is a newer io that seems to see two ports per assignment.

See this page and also seek out the Digi forums and their manuals. Seems their site is all out of whack. https://webcache.googleusercontent.c...ient=firefox-a


Try a few live cd/dvd/usb's maybe from fedora, opensuse and such. See if that red light goes off. It should start red and then maybe flash until the device is recognized.

This bug should not really affect your device.


Worse comes to worse contact the maintainer in edgeport section of. http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Docum...usb-serial.txt

I haven't downloaded anything. I don't understand the firmware thing, what is the file called, where is it etc..

This Linux thing is getting all too hard, I thought it was maturing, but alas it seems a real difficult OS to work with..

Linux is fine, the edgeport is not a common consumer device. It is however a very common industrial device. A normal developer for an industrial system would contact Digi usually for assistance in making their device work. You might email them for assistance if you can't find the doc's on their site. Last night, I found their site in confusion and disarray.

As of a few years ago, the USB maintainers did supply support for at least two of the chips in Digi boxes.

As you say, you have io_edgeport or at least it reports as such.


It is pretty easy to boot to a few distro's and see if your light corrects to the windows state. I believe it should act as windows does.

It is easy to make a loopback connector and see if your serial ports are really working.

I have used Digi boards for decades from isa cards to usb on QNX, Windows and Linux but I never set up the system. Since you posted this, I guess it can't hurt me to learn more about it. It would be a help for me to diag machines more fully by digging into this device.

As far as I know, I may have only replaced one or two of these in all my years with them.

Hi David,

Sorry, we do not provide any support for Linux drivers for the Edgeport. All Linux drivers for this product are provided by 3rd party developers.

Best Regards,

Boot to another distro, live cd/usb/dvd. Does it work?



Kind of a shame linux is treated like that from companies that sell these products to industrial users.

As I said, the usb maintainers for linux used to support it. Could be any number of issues from bios settings or other bios issues to usb type/chipset.

The only edgeport running under fedora I have is bolted in. I only assume it shows the correct light.
