ucom — USB tty support
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
kernel configuration file:
Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
following line in loader.conf(5):
The ucom driver attaches to USB modems, serial ports, and other devices
that need to look like a tty. The ucom driver shows a behavior like a
tty(4). This means that normal programs such as tip(1) or pppd(8) can be
used to access the device.
The portno locater can be used to decide which port to use for devices
that have multiple external ports.
Prior to FreeBSD 6.0 ucom created /dev/ucom? rather than the uniform
device names created today. Old scripts must be adjusted accordingly.
tty(4), uark(4), uchcom(4), uftdi(4), umct(4), umodem(4), uplcom(4),
usb(4), uvisor(4), uvscom(4)
The ucom driver was adopted from NetBSD in March of 2002. This manual
page was adopted from NetBSD by Tom Rhodes ⟨trhodes@FreeBSD.org⟩ in April
