Problem getting com ports (cuaU) in web gui to select from



  • Hi Guys,

    I'm trying to configure ppp interface (3g modem – Option ICON 225). I have cuaU0.0 and cuaU0.1 interfaces in /dev but when I try to configure ppp thru web gui there is no interfaces to select from.
    I try to check if my interfaces are operational (cuaU0.0 and cuaU0.1) by issuing command echo AT-CPIN=999 > /dev/cuaU0.0(1) but I don't get any response. I guess that web gui use similar way to check if com interface is in fact modem and while it can get OK issuing AT command it doesn't show any interfaces to select from.
    I'm sorry if I put my problem in wrong category but I would appreciate if someone can help me solve this problem.

    Thanks,
    Nikola



  • Yes, the web interface checks that they respond as a modem before displaying them. That suggests the modem isn't actually functional for some reason. Though you may want to check the source to see exactly what it is that we're sending to determine it's a live modem (I don't recall off the top of my head) and try that.



  • Hi,

    I think that I'm near solution for my problem. As I mentioned I'm using Option Icon 225 3G modem and that is the problem. This modem need its own driver not the one compiled in pfsense (u3g). I compile correct driver (uhso) on freebsd 8.1 to get uhso.ko file, I put that file in boot/kernel and in kernel.conf I added the line uhso_load="YES". When I attach my usb card it try to use uhso driver but it get detached immediately and than reattached and load u3g driver. Can I, somehow, disable u3g driver? This is driver compiled with kernel.

    Thanks,
    Nikola
