How does one configure settings for USB-to-serial adapter in FreeBSD ?
The one i have purchased is
On the Gentoo box, 'lsusb' displays it as:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 067b:2303
Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
i have to access a headless AMD64X2 box running FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE,
from a FreeBSD 8.0 laptop.
So far, i've used 'cu' and '/dev/cu0a', but thats because both
the systems had a serial port interface.
The key info i'm looking for is:
. what is the driver to load
. what is the device entry to look for
. is 'cu' good enough or i need to install some other tool
