[Mono-list] Serial Ports

Hi Glenn,

My experience is that serial ports work using the same code in Windows
and Linux - with the only change being the port name. Does your serial
device need RTS/CTS lines? Are they set right? Is the timeout set

Best regards,

Subject: [Mono-list] Serial Ports

We have a peice of code that is working without a hitch on windows.
However on Mono (Ubuntu Jaunty; runtime 2.4) We get nothing. No
exceptions, no errors but also its not connecting. Are there any
settings or configuration options, any gotchas that i need to know when
handling Serial ports on Mono on Linux? We have switched our code to use
the ubuntu device name (/dev/ttyS1) and have verified the device exixts
and works on that port, weve tested with PUTTY.
