shall list the Linux equivalent of the Windows COM ports. This
information is generally found in the HowTo section, but if you
haven't found it there, here it is for quick reference. This information
is asked during the configuration of various softwares, so its
best if you make a list of of 'Which Hardware - Which Port'
for your machine, so that you can refer to it whenever required.
My Setup :
table shows the setup on my machine. If its the same on yours,
then you can directly use these values.
Remember that the translation of the Com Ports -> Linux files
is the same everywhere, but your particular hardware may not be
on the same Windows Com Port as mine. What I mean is, Com 1 in
Windows is /dev/ttyS0 in Linux everywhere. But the mouse need
not necessarily be present on Com 1. The mouse might be present
on some other Com Port. You should know which hardware is on which
Windows Com Port on your machine.
