Re: Using remote access port for connecting serial devices

Hi Natesan,

Are you trying to configure a modem for remote access? In that case the thread given below may help you. Look at the answer from Trevor Roddam.

Re: Using remote access port for connecting serial devices

Hi Syam,

I want to connect serial device not modem.I want configure a serial port device file for remote access port and connect the device.

I got one ITRC document which talks about only creating modem devices.

Can we allow to configure serial terminal devices.

Re: Using remote access port for connecting serial devices

Hi,

Yes many peoples are using this functionality. Especially remote support team of HP, they normally connects to the MP through a serial modem for remote diagonosis. As this is required by your customer, connecting to the normal serial port is enough.
You can very well connect a modem to one of the serial port and configure the system for a 'dial in'. I would prefer a standard HP modem for this purpose

Hi Natesan,

Hewlett Packard PCI Multiplexer is a high-speed serial communications multiple port product available in two flavors J3592A/A6748A (8-port Mux) and J3593A/A6749A (64-Port Mux). Along with several different modular components, these cards provide multiple serial ports which can be configured in a variety of combinations, to satisfy most applications.

Models are:

PCI 64-port Terminal Multiplexer A6749A
PCI 8-port Terminal Multiplexer A6748A

Hope this info would help you.


Also See the Server Specs for rp3440

Re: Using remote access port for connecting serial devices

Hi Natesan,

As I posted last time there are supported MUX cards available for rp3440 which will help you to setup the required terminal devices. I havent tried using an MDP panel with rp3440 as dumb terminals are very rarely used in today's world as PC prices are very less now a days and dumb terminals can be replaced with good terminal emulation softwares which are freely available.


You may also ask your friends Sunil.K.U / Monahasundaram @Emitac.. I believe, they will be able to help you better than any one... :-)

Syam
