COM ports in Linux, how do I set them up?
Background: I have a Weather display station that is connected to my desktop via a Serial port. The software (Heavy Weather) runs on Windows, so I am using WINE. This application allows me to select from COM port 1,2,3, or 4, but my Ubuntu OS does not see any COM selections. I also have a couple of other pieces of hardware that connect via the Serial port. In fact I have three (3) physical Serial ports on the rear panel of my desktop.
Question: How do I configure Ubuntu to utilize these Serial ports. I have seen some sltuff about ttyS but none of it is descriptive enough to help me.
So I would like to have this weather station on one Serial port, my UPS communication link on another Serial port, and the third is for an infrared connection for a fun device.
