    Serial Com Port Problem ttySx
    Hi all CentOS 5 on a DSEB-DG motherboard I am having trouble communicating with my APC UPS on /dev/ttyS0. What I do know: UPS and cables are ok they work ok on my other server. CentOS on a Intel S3210SH M/B Comparing the serial ports in the Hardware browser I notice that the Working system (Intel) is listed as such [code]16500A-compatible Com port 16500A-compatible Com port 16500A-compatible Com port 16500A-compatible Com port[/code] The non working system lists [code]16500A-compatible Com port 16500A-compatible Com port[/code] The com ports are set in the bios as: Com1 3F8/IRQ4 Com2 2F8/IRQ3 So I can see why the system does not work. What I do NOT know: How can I correct this problem. Do I need to re-install the drivers? if so HOW. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Dave

    Hi all
    CentOS 5 on a DSEB-DG motherboard

    I am having trouble communicating with my APC UPS on /dev/ttyS0.

    What I do know:
    UPS and cables are ok they work ok on my other server. CentOS on a Intel S3210SH M/B
    Comparing the serial ports in the Hardware browser I notice that the Working system (Intel) is listed as such

    16500A-compatible Com port
    16500A-compatible Com port
    16500A-compatible Com port
    16500A-compatible Com port

    The non working system lists

    16500A-compatible Com port
    16500A-compatible Com port

    The com ports are set in the bios as:
    Com1 3F8/IRQ4
    Com2 2F8/IRQ3

    So I can see why the system does not work.

    What I do NOT know:
    How can I correct this problem. Do I need to re-install the drivers? if so HOW.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.
