hello


yes i did ls. and i can see many ports.

so i did ls for ttys* and i got S0, S1, S2, S3 ports available.

there are no ttyusb* ports.

or is there anyway to know what the serial port might be called. or how do i assign the right port.

I wonder is vmware properly allowing ubuntu to access the usb port?
I can't imagine the virtual serial port would be called ttyS0 anyway.
If you type:

ls /dev/tty*

You will see a list of tty ports that are defined, if the usb>serial
adapter is working it will have its own file here, I'd imagine it will
be one called ttyusb0 or something (at least thats how it is on the mac,
I've not used a usb>serial on linux).

If it were me, I'd start with a real install of ubuntu rather than in a
vm, it can only add to the uncertainties...
