I'm having some trouble getting my modem up and
running on FreeBSD 4.8. A search through the mailing
list archives shows that many of the problems I've
been wrestling with seem to have cropped up before,
yet I haven't been able to follow any of the
discussion to a workable answer.
My modem is sitting on cuaa2 and I needed to
re-compile my kernel to recognize that port. I did
this and everything went fine, although I am getting
the dreaded "sio5: configured irq 2 not in bitmap of
probed irqs 0" error which I haven't found a solution
for in any documentation or discussion.
Just for laughs, I went ahead and tried to contact the
modem via ppp, but when I enter the "term" command I
"Warning: deflink: /dev/cuaa2: Bad file descriptor
Failed to open /dev/cuaa2"
I am now officially stuck and am entering a plea for
The relevant lines from the kernel config file are
pasted below. This looks right to me, but if anyone
can think what I'm doing wrong (including RTFM
references) I would be forever grateful.
# Serial (COM) ports
device sio0 at isa? port IO_COM1 flags 0x10 irq 4
device sio1 at isa? port IO_COM2 irq 3
device sio2 at isa? port IO_COM3 irq 5
device sio3 at isa? disable port IO_COM4 irq 9
