It sounds like the adapter is trying to present itself as a serial port. The
Prolific Technology USB-Serial controller needs the uplcom(4) driver either
compiled into the kernel or loaded as a module.
Try (as root)
and then plugging your adapter in. You should see a message about ucom rather
than ugen, and the devices should be something like
as the tty and callout devices for the adapter.
