Re: Making Device Fiiles

You have to run minicom -s as root. Are you doing that?

Also, you can iteratively work through your serial ports--to be sure you 
have the right one with 'echo ata >ttyS0' etc on up through whatever -- 
ttyS3, I suppose. I don't know whether you have any hearing to get benefit 
from this, but it should sound like a modem answering the phone. Shut it 
off with 'echo ath >ttyS?' of course.

The website I gave you has source, I think, for generating baudot. Don't 
know how device specific that code is for their board, but I thought it 
was fairly general when I looked at it some time ago.
