Re: Making Device Fiiles

You can make a link like this
cd /dev
ln -s ttyS1 modem

that's assuming your second serial port is on ttyS1

or you could reconfigure minicom to talk to /dev/ttyS1 instead of modem. 
There are other params you need to change in minicom anyway and changing 
modem device won't be hard.
