General :: Windows With Putty Via USB Serial Cable To Serial Port - Output Ok, Input Isn't?

Jan 13, 2010

I am trying to get two way serial communications going between a Windows XP system and a Linux system (RHEL 5).I have /sbin/agetty -L 9600 ttyS0

in /etc/inittab. I am using a generic USB to serial adaptor on Windows (Unitek) and a null modem cable. I have putty configured for 9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, one stop bit, no flow control.I get the login prompt from agetty in the putty window but input does not work; I see weird characters in the putty screen. I can echo output into the device from windows and see it, but

cat < /dev/ttyS0. just prints out weird characters from what I type.

Hello. I want to use my Debian box as an internet connection for a Win95 laptop. The laptop is old enough that the only port I have available to connect to the internet from is the serial port. I have heard that a serial port redirector will allow it to access the internet through my debian box, but I have no clue how to set one up. Any advice. Thanks

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?

Software :: Resetting A Serial Port ?

Mar 23, 2009

I communication with different subsystems using serial port. In some subsystems after running for a while, I start getting invalid data inspite of system sending correct data. For dealing with this situation I used to
reset serial ports by closing and reopening serial port, it was doing the trick but somehow when I have implemented this in my new application, this also doesn't work.

void CPort::

The ClosePort function invokes close system call.

some other way to reset serial port in Linux? I am using RHEL 4, C++ and Qt 4.2.1 for my application development. Also I have used multithreading to implement each subsystem in a separate thread. Its strange that if A,B,C are three threads, A & B run fine together but when C is introduced B starts receiving invalid data after sometime and never recovers even after resetting the port as mentioned above.

Programming :: C - Serial Port Won't Open?

I'm using C serial in a program to open and use a serial port but the port won't open for one reason or another. The program successfully runs on a different computer and when using RealTerm: Serial Capture Program, I can connect through the serial port with the same settings as I'm attempting through my c code. Anyone have any idea why it might be failing? I know this is still pretty vague, so let me know if there's other things I can tell you that might help to finding a solution
