Re: Re: Modem problems

Hi there,

On  30 Jul, this message from Stefan Heimann echoed through cyberspace:

This is just the generic (PC-style 16550) serial driver blindly poking
at IO ports (which incidentally are unused on Macs, hence the error
message). If you don't need the serial module for PCMCIA serial (or
modem) modules, I suggest getting rid of it alltogether.

You are looking at the wrong port, because:

you are trying to open /dev/ttyS1, which is the Infrared port. Use
/dev/ttyS0 for the internal modem. Be aware that after opening the
serial device, it takes some time to power-up the modem; apps that have
too short timeouts might give errors before the modem has done its init.
