Etherlite 32 not working under Linux

0 votes
I have an etherlite EL-32. It was previous installed on a Solaris system, which is now dead.

I grabed the 'dgrp-1.8' tools from the digi web site.
I compiled & installed the drivers.
I upgraded the unit firmware to 7.9
I configured the unit using the dgrp-gui
I can rlogin into the unit. Output of 'vers' is below.

however, everytime I try to use dinc to talk to /dev/ttyds00 (one of the units), it says

[dirk-48] sudo ./dinc /dev/ttyds00
/dev/ttyds00: Resource temporarily unavailable

when I watch the network traffic using tcpdump, I see that my host is trying to start TCP connections to port 771 of the unit. However, there is never a response to the SYN packet.

Doing a port scan of the unit using 'nmap' shows only the rlogin port as being active.

what am I doing wrong?

sample output from unit

[dirk-43] rlogin 24hr

Unfortunately, the 7.9 firmware version is fairly old and will not work with the RealPort driver. Please download and upgrade the firmware to version 1.5:


The firmware versioning started over at 1.x when the RealPort driver was designed to work with this units.
