Lightbulb links (directories and devices)


I know that when I try to install a softmodem, the script makes a ligation from /dev/modem to /anything, in other words, accessing /dev/modem I'm accessing /anything.

How I do this? Manually.

You need to create a symlink using the command

ln -s /dev/modem /anything
