Using a Wavecom GSM modem

Hello guys i'm a newbie when it comes to linux. My problem is, i developed an SMS app on windows but now plan to port it to linux. I don't know how to communicate with it thru code(c/c++) or using a terminal program like minicom as my linux box seem not to even detect it(running SLES 10). The modem is a wavecom one and i use a USB cable. Can anyone help me?

Thanx in advance

You communicate to the Wavecom modem via AT commands. The modem will be fixed to communicate at specified baud rate (doesn't auto baud IIRC) - usually 9600 by defaut, although you can change this with something like AT+IPR 19200 & AT&W for example (there should be a AT command set guide on the wavecom website)

I would try using a standard serial port in the first instance as I've always had problems with USB-Serial converters.

I think there's a command like ATI5 which will respond with the modem model if you get comms working AOK.
