NAME

ucom -- USB tty support

SYNOPSIS

To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device ucom Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): ucom_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

The ucom driver attaches to USB modems, serial ports, and other devices that need to look like a tty. The ucom driver shows a behavior like a tty(4). This means that normal programs such as tip(1) or ppp(8) can be used to access the device. The portno locater can be used to decide which port to use for devices that have multiple external ports.

FILES

/dev/cuaU? /dev/ttyU?
