data transfer bet RH8.0 pc to & fro device thru /dev/ttyS0


hi
i need to issue a command which is of ~20 hex bytes to a device connected to /dev/ttyS0 and in turn capture the ~24 hex bytes of response.it works fine under cygwin and dos.i feel that i ve not done the settings properly. i referred the serial prg howto. but unable to resolve the write operation thru /dev/ttyS0.

i have the same problem what togunter faced long back,
he had posted a message to the same forum with thread (below)

- but there are no replies.

awaiting ur help
thanks a lot

Hi all-
I'm trying to write some data to a device on the com1 port on my Redhat 7.2 box, but when I write data to /dev/ttyS0, the characters I write appear to get garbled(and i dont even seem to get the same number of characters).
The same code works fine under windows using cygwin to write to /dev/com1 (after using stty to determine that the serial port is setup the same as in linux).

the code i am using is below.

any ideas?
thanks for any help
