Hi all:

Here is what I found:

On WIN XP, the port range for the modem is 0x02e8-0x02ef with IRQ 3. On the Linux, one of lines in /dev/ioports showed:

0x02e8 - 0x02ef: PCI device 11c1:0441

I assume that it is for the modem

Also I used "minicom" program and here is what it showed on the window:

Welcom to minicom 1.83.1

which told me that the Suse linux recognized the modem.

But the "minicom" stopped here and didn't show which COM port it found on which the modem operated. Also I installed the binary package from and it linked /dev/modem to /dev/ttyLT0 automatically.

Here got me confused. Obviously I have to set up modem by using "setserial", but on which COM port? /dev/ttyS2 (COM3) or /dev/ttyLT0? Or I shoudl link /dev/ttyLT0 to /dev/ttyS2 instead of /dev/modem?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
