Configuring a (RealPort) Terminal with SCOADMIN in UnixWare

Use this procedure to configure a RealPort device for a terminal in SCO UnixWare. See your operating system documentation for more information on configuring a serial device for a terminal.

The Digi device and RealPort should be properly installed, configured and functioning before proceeding.


  1. Connect a proper cable between the port and terminal. 
  2. Enable and configure the port using one of the these three methods:



    Using pmadm

    This method can be used in any SVR4-based Unix system.  Though effective, it is often tedious to use because the command used is complicated. Example:  

    pmadm -a -p zsmon -s a001s -fu -i root -v `ttyadm -V` -m "`ttyadm -d /dev/dty/a001s -l 9600 -s /usr/bin/login`"

    Using the Serial Manager
    in SCO UnixWare

    This method works only in SCO UnixWare. See General SCO UnixWare Device Configuration.

    Using sysadm

    This procedure works only in SVR4 systems that have access to a utility called sysadm. See General SVR4 Device Configuration.
