Bryan,

I tried removing the default FTDI driver then installing the VCP driver.  Still no luck.  Do you have any idea if the FTDI driver needs to be modified to work with the verdex pro?

Thanks.

Josh,

So on the mac the default FTDI drivers can often cause problems, so you need to remove them with:
sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext
(unloads FTDIUSBSerialDriver)

Command. Then as you mention install the latest VCP driver from FTDI.

At that point plug in your FTDI device and run the command
ls /dev/tty.*
(lists all connected tty devices)

Which should give you something like this:
/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Modem    /dev/tty.usbserial-A600JTXA
/dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync

The tty.usbserial is what you want to connect with using screen or whatever console program you want.
screen /dev/tty.usbserial-A600JTXA 115200
(connects to usbserial device at 115200 baud rate, use ctrl-A and then ctrl-\ to exit screen)

Hope that helps,
Bryan

I'm trying to get my Mac, using OS X 6, to recognize my verdex board.  I researched that I needed to install the FTDI USB serial driver (VCP driver) .  Tried this, but still no luck.  I have a serial to usb converter for my mac and i have the usb supplying the power to the board.  After the install I tried looking for the device ID through the apple system profiler and can't find it.  Am I missing a step?

Thanks.
