Re: How to use minicom with Paralell Port
I've found a DB-9 adapter schema:
RJ45 - 9-pin connector
1 RTS - 8 CTS
2 DTR - 6 DSR
3 TXD - 2 RXD
4 Sig. Ground - 5 Signal Ground
5 Signal Ground - 5 Signal Ground
6 RXD - 3 TXD
7 DSR - 4 DTR
8 CTS - 7 RTS
I'll try it as soon as posible and let you know how was that...

I've recently bought a SPARC server and I have to configure it using LOM (Lights out Management)... SUN sent me a DB25 to Ethernet adapter but, due I've installed debian using the netinstall and I've installed only the piece of software that I need (I don't have Internet in my new home yet :S), plus I've compiled my kernel without Paralell Port Support (which is absolutely fixable), BUT I don't have the parallel port device created (lp, plip or something).
I've attached a text file with the list of my devices, I hope you can help me on this. Basically I need to set up minicom to use parallel port and set up mi new SPARC.
Thank you in advance
