I’m trying to use a Plugable cable to connect from my Mac to my new Sokeris net6501-50 device.
I bought the USB to Serial Converte (PL2303HX chipset).
I’ve installed the drivers (md_PL2303_MacOSX10.6_dmg_v1.4.0), and rebooted.
The 2 command to see if everything is working, here below:
$ kextstat | grep prolific
138 0 0xffffff7f80794000 0x8000 0x8000 com.prolific.driver.PL2303 (2.0.0)
$ ioreg -c IOSerialBSDClient | grep usb
| | | “IOTTYBaseName” = “usbserial”
| | | “IOCalloutDevice” = “/dev/cu.usbserial”
| | | “IODialinDevice” = “/dev/tty.usbserial”
| | | “IOTTYDevice” = “usbserial”
I also see the USB-Serial Controller D in Network Settings.
I then connect the cable (with a female adapter) to my Soekris net6501 board, then I run:
$screen /dev/tty.usbserial 19200
Finally attach the power cable to the Soekeris device, but I dont’s see anything.
I also tried with Minicom, with proper drivers loaded and settings on a Virtual Machine with Linux, but same results. I should see some output from the device, but I don’t see anything.
Can you help me?
