Re: SS4000E Cable Wiring

I wrote to this list a few weeks back with similar problems Mark. I couldn't get any communication via the serial ports.

Two null modem cables and two idc10s to db9 brackets. Tried resoldering the correct pinouts on the bracket too, nada. No garbage no nothing.

Let us know if you make any headway with the cable.

I'd also be interested in knowing if anyone has managed to get real perfomance out of the unit, or at least found the bottlenecks that cap it at around 5-6 MB/s

Might be fun to trunk eth0 and eth1 too :-)

The java app is just to see if it possible to test the cable somehow. I can connect to the serial port on the pc and I know that that is working.
Just writing the data receive event handlers now to see if I can get

I will try screen with the serial device too. Its all a learning curve for
me so nothing is wasted :)

time to mess around with this stuff. Any pointers appreciated,

what are you planning to use the java app for?  assuming you're
connecting to this serial port from (for example) a host's first USB
serial port, you should be able to try it out with plain ol' GNU screen:

screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

(if your device defaults to a different baud rate, substitute it for

you'd get out of it like killing any other screen session: C-a C-k
