General :: Serial And Parallel Data Communication On Fedora 13

Apr 22, 2010

I have been trying out serial and parallel data communication on Fedora 13 Beta. I can easily see the list of serial ports through:

setserial -g /dev/ttyS[0-3]
And can also write some data through:
ll > /dev/ttyS0
But I am unable to see parallel ports
I can see something like:
But when I try out:
ll > /dev/parport0
It throws error.

General :: Palm Vx & Serial Mouse Communication ?

Apr 25, 2011

When I try to Sync a Palm Vx to my PC through serial port I get a communication error message in the gadget. My PalmOS Devices application is already configured to use tty0 or tty1 in unsuccessfully trials. I have a lot of information in the addresses, agenda, notes, etc. and do not want to loose that information gathered for years, nor to return to Windows.

As a test, I used a serial mouse in the serial port and It didn't work. I verified the Bios Setup and COM 1 and COM 2 are enabled.

I also checked my system serial support with the following commands:

And messages were OK when compared with typical outputs. My machine is a Pentium 4 CPU 1.6 GHz, in a U8668 motherboard (Award Software International). I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Gnome.

I am new in Linux and don't know Bash yet. I had followed indications from Internet tutorials successfully, but I don't know how to proceed in this case.

Red Hat / Fedora :: How To Change From Serial To Parallel Mode On Cluster

Jun 10, 2010

I compiled a code on a Linux cluster machine with mpich and ifort. A test run shows that the program works fine. However, it seems that the program is running in serial instead of parallel mode: reducing the number of CPU's from 32 to 3 does not increase the time it takes to run the simulation. Infact, the simulation is slightly faster with 3 compared to 32 CPU's. Unfortunately I have very little experience on the subject.

My questions are:

(1) How can I be 100% sure my code is running in parallel and not in serial mode?

(2) If the code is running serial, what do I need to do to make it run in parallel mode?


For submission I use a jobscript which includes the following lines:

Red Hat 4.1.2-46

Ubuntu :: Open The COM1 Port To Do Serial Communication Via PHP?

Mar 15, 2010

Not really sure where to post this, so here goes... I installed apache2, php and MySQL via LAMP and everything seems to work fine but when I try to open the COM1 port to do serial communication via PHP, I get a permission denied error.

'mode com1: BAUD=9600 PARITY=N data=8 stop=1 xon=off';

I've also tried using /dev/ttyS0 instead of COM1: but no luck. Anyone out there know what I'm doing wrong? I don't know if I need to set something up in apache2 or php or if the code is just wrong. I'm on an Acer Aspire One with Ubuntu's LNR 9.10.

General :: Minicom Shows Offline And Is Not Capturing The Serial Data Being Sent?

Minicom was running fine two days ago capturing data from a gage device via a serial cable. Yesterday, users of the data started complaining that they were not receiving any data.

The minicom status line reads offline. Is this part of the problem or is this normal (I never really noticed it before.) All settings on the gage device match the minicom settings.

I am doing a project where 2 clients connect to server and communicate (chat) and transfer data one after other using sockets. I have working code for this in C language. Now our main aim is to create a communication link where two clients transfer multiple streams data parallely. To be more precise i want to transfer images files and audio files parallel at same time, so is it possible to send data parallel using one socket connection?

Programming :: Intercept Data On Serial Port?

I dont know if this is the right forum, But I try to find a solution, I want to intercept data from/to serial port without disrupting the software that manages the serial port, (I would like to save the data to a file or sent into a socket) I searched somes modules and programs (linspy, ttysniff, interceptty, maxty ...), A bit complicated (There are some diff. between kernel 2.4 and 2.6), So I'd like to change the serial port driver to intercept the "read" and "write " and do what I want with the data, I'd like to know what do you think about

Networking :: Serial Port : Not Able To Write Big Chunk Of Data?

Mar 10, 2010

I am trying to send text data from one PC to other using Serial cable. One of the PC is running linux and I am sending data from it using write(2) system call. The log size is approx 65K bytes but the write(2) system call returns some 4K bytes (i.e. this much amount of data is getting transferred). I tried breaking the data in chunks of 4K but write(2) returns -1.My question is that "Is there any buffer limit for writing data on serial port? or can I send data of any size?. Also do I need to continously read data from other PC as I write 4K chunk of data"Do I need to do any special configuration in termios structure for sending (huge) data?

Programming :: Serial Port Program Not Outputting The Right Data?

Apr 11, 2009

I have connected a device to my linux system with a serial cable (rs232). The settings are: port /dev/ttyS0, baud rate=38400, data bits=8, stop bits=1, no parity, no hardware or software handshaking. I wrote a linux program that sends 1 byte to the device, but the device doesn't receive it. I know the serial ports are working because when I use the CuteCOM application to send data, the device DOES receive it, so obviously it is a problem with my code..


#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <math.h>

Debian Hardware :: USB Serial Adapter Spontaneously Emitting Data Every 20 Secs

Jul 13, 2015

I tried connecting my Debian laptop to a vintage Apple //e using a Super Serial Card on the Apple side and a USB to serial adapter on the laptop side. It kind of works -- I can send data over to the Apple using e.g. echo "foobar" > /dev/ttyUSB0 or via minicom --, but every 20 seconds (quite exactly!) some 4 random characters appear on the Apple's screen (mostly tildes, sometimes a pipe). This does *not* happen when booting the laptop into Debian rescue mode; so I guess it must be some (daemon?) process messing around with the usb serial device in regular intervals.

I tried to disable quite some services, but the problem remains.I don't have any clue how I might catch the evil-doer in the act -- virtually all serial monitors I've so far read about allow only monitoring the interaction of a known program/process with a serial port. But in this case I first have to actually find out which process is talking to the serial port in the first place.

Programming :: Debian Serial Port Read() Return Wrong Data?

Jul 6, 2010

I am implementing a simple serial protocol where my ARM9 board, running Linux is communicating to a slave peripheral board. The Master sends a 12 byte data stream and the peripheral board returns status in a 23 byte response. The serial port is opened in raw mode. It works perfectly on 44 reads; however, on the 45 read the data returned from the read() is incorrect. I've framed what's being sent on an oscope and it is correct.The coincidence is that 23 x 44 = 1012. It's as though the receive buffer is 1K and when I go past the boundary I get bad data. The read following the bad one is good again.I've tried flushing the buffer before reading but get the same result.Here's the port initialization code:

int initport(int fd)
