Serial Port in HP-9000 D-class

Hi all,
I need to configure a serial port on D-class to communicate with an application in a PC. Communications must be with HW flow control, and I need to configure HP9000 port , serial port is in mux with 10 pins RJ45 port, I don't remember P/N. I need to initialize port to 1200bps 8n1. My problem is that I can't remember how to do this, I have done that years ago, I remeber that I must insert a line in innitab file. And I need to change minor in device file.

Any help?

David,

You use stty to set parameter of serial devices.

stty 1200 cs8 < /dev/tty...

should be sufficient.

Hello David,

setup the UUCP files for that, in "/etc/uucp":
Systems
Devices
Dialers

Then you can try with "cu(1M)", to see if everything is
working. The O'Reilly book "Managing UUCP..." would
be helpful, btw...

HTH,

Yes, stty is enough. One more point: you need to create the device file first. The easiest way is SAM: peripheral device --> action
You also can use insf or mksf to do so.

man for details.
