Users of this software must accept this disclaimer of warranty: "This
software is supplied AS IS. Mark Becker disclaims all warranties, expressed
or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability
and of fitness for any purpose. Mark Becker assumes no liability for
damages, direct or consequential, which may result from the use of this
software."
Purpose
-------

Write a disk image file to a floppy disk.
Equipment/Software Requirements
-------------------------------

* PC/XT/AT or 100% compatible with at least 256K of RAM and a floppy disk
drive.

* MS-DOS version 3.21 or greater.

* A formatted diskette.

This program uses well-documented generic low-level DOS and BIOS functions.
It should run on nearly every PC in existance. PS/2's should be able to run
RaWrite but this has not been tested.


CAVEAT
------

This program will write ANY disk file to a floppy, overwriting any previous
information that may have been present. If you wish to re-use a diskette
that has been written to by RaWrite then that diskette will probably need to
be reformatted; all MS-DOS specific information will have been erased.
Usage
-----

C> RAWRITE

And follow the prompts. All arguments are case-insensitive.

If the source and destination drives are the same, RaWrite will ask the user
to swap diskettes as required. Rawrite allocates a large buffer in RAM to
reduce the number of disk swaps.

RaWrite may be aborted at any time by typing ^C or CTRL-Break.

There is an extensive readme file zipped with the driver 6546.zipSUBJECT: DOS INT14 & FOSSIL Driver readme.txt
for Comtrol(TM) RocketPort(R) Series Controllers
DRIVER: 6546 (RCKTFOSS.EXE, RFSMALL.EXE, RFMULTI.EXE)
VERSION: 1.71
REVISED: 12/15/97

OVERVIEW
======================================
RCKTFOSS is a DOS terminate-stay-resident (TSR) program that
provides a software interface for controlling RocketPort serial
cards. The "FIDO/Opus/SEAdog Standard Interface Layer" (FOSSIL)
has been a longtime standard for connecting BBS software to
multiport serial cards. INT14 BIOS functions are also supported
with the -j option.

RCKTFOSS requires a approximately 60K of memory and can
be loaded into high memory using the DOS 'loadhigh' command.
A non-buffered version, RFSMALL, is included which takes only
24K of memory. RFMULTI is another version which will work with
multiple RocketPort cards.

HELP
======================================
This driver includes command line help. To access help,
type RCKTFOSS -H at the DOS command line and press Enter.

LOADING THE DRIVER
======================================
To load the driver, issue the following DOS command line from
either the DOS prompt or a batch file:

[loadhigh] rcktfoss [-option -option]

Example: rcktfoss -p180 -c3 -l38400 -mn8

The options are explained in detail following the QUICKSTART.

QUICKSTART
======================================
Here are some typical driver configurations:

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c3 -mn8
Multiport setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 8 ports
starting at COM3 (FOSSIL & INT14 Port:2). The RocketPort base
address is 180H.

rcktfoss.exe -b -c3 -mn8 -l38400
Multiport setup for PCI-bus RocketPort. This supports 8 ports
starting at COM3 (FOSSIL Port:2). Baud Rates will be locked
at 38400 for all ports.

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c1
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 1 port
(COM1,fossil:0). It will use the first port on the RocketPort.

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c1 -o1
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 1 port
using the 2nd port on the RocketPort board, but the program
will see it as COM1.

rcktfoss.exe -j -p180 -f0 -l9600
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort using INT14 BIOS calls.
The base address is 180H, flow control is set to none (-f0),
and the baud rate is locked at 9600.

rfmulti.exe -mn24 -p180,100 -k8,16
Multiport, multiple board setup for two ISA-bus RocketPorts.
First RocketPort has 8 ports and a base I/O address of 180h,
while second RocketPort has 16 ports and a base I/O address
of 100h.

Introduction
This Hardware Installation document discusses the
following information:
• Product overview
• RocketPort terminology
• Before installing the hardware
• Installing the hardware
• Supplying power to external devices
• Interface overview
• Interface connectors and building loopback plugs
- DB9
- DB25
- RJ45
• Setting ISA DIP switches
• Hardware specifications
• FCC notices
• Troubleshooting and creating diagnostics
• Contacting Technical Support

Product Overview
The RocketPort 485 series multiport serial card fits into
the ISA or EISA slot of a personal computer, and uses a 36
MHz processor specifically designed to process
asynchronous serial communications.
The RocketPort 485 series uses Application Specific
Integrated Circuits (ASICs) technology to replace most
hardware components, including:
• The processor
• Serial controller
• Bus interface logic and other miscellaneous logic
To eliminate memory mapping conflicts, the RocketPort
485 series is I/O mapped.

Before Installing the Hardware
Read this subsection:
• If you already have one or more RocketPort ISA cards
installed in your system.
• If you plan to install a combination of RocketPort ISA
and RocketPort PCI cards at this time.
Installing Both RocketPort ISA and PCI Cards:
You must complete installation of all RocketPort PCI cards
before beginning to install any RocketPort ISA cards.
Explanation:
I/O addressing for RocketPort PCI cards is handled
automatically by the computer’s BIOS when you first
power up the computer after installing the cards.
I/O addresses for RocketPort ISA cards are set manually
using DIP switches on the card. If you install an ISA card
before installing a RocketPort PCI card, the ISA card
addressing may interfere with the computer’s ability to
recognize the RocketPort PCI card which may prevent the
PCI card from functioning properly.
Additional Considerations:
If you are mixing RocketPort ISA and PCI cards, set the
DIP switches on the ISA cards so that the first ISA card
you install is the “first” card for I/O addressing purposes,
even if it is physically the second, third, or fourth card that
you install. See the Setting the DIP Switches discussion for
switch information.

Building Custom Cables

This section contains cabling information and how to build your own
custom cables for RocketPort controllers. To go to any of the following
topics, merely click on the topic:
• Building Custom Cables
• Shielding Cables
• Using Modular Connectors
• DTE to DCE Straight-Through Cables
• DTE to DTE Null-Modem Cables
• DTE to DTE Data-Only Null Modem Cables
• DTE to DTE Control Loop-Back Cables
• RS-422 DTE to DTE Cables
• Pinouts for DB25 Connectors
• Pinouts for DB9 Connectors
• Pinouts for RJ45 Connectors
• Pinouts for RJ11 Connectors

Building Custom Cables
Use this subsection if you want to build customized cables for the
Comtrol RocketPort controllers.
Usually you can buy the correct cables from distributors and electronics
stores for your controller. In some cases, your peripheral equipment
may need custom cables.
Check your equipment to understand what kind of cable to use, Data
Terminal Equipment (DTE) or Data Communications Equipment
(DCE). All Comtrol serial connectors are configured as DTE.

Shielding Cables
The controller falls within the limits for a Class A computing device
established by the FCC. To comply with these limits, the serial cables
used to connect the controller to external devices should be shielded.
The shield should be connected to a metal or metallized connector
shroud on each end of the cable.

Using Modular Connectors
The RJ45 and RJ11 connector is similar to the phone-jack type of
connector. Both the connector and cable are easily available from your
distributor or any electronics store. You may want to connect your
peripherals using a D-shell type of connector to an RJ45 interface with
a straight-through cable and an adapter that you build.

RocketPort and RocketPort RA Series
Setting the DIP Switch Reference

Setting the DIP Switch
To prepare your controller for installation, you may
need to set the I/O address DIP switch. The default I/O
address range is 180 through 1C3.
For the first controller, select a 68-byte I/O address
range. For subsequent controllers, select a 64-byte
range.
RocketPort controllers use I/O address ranges at 400
hexadecimal (hex) intervals above the I/O range. Most
peripherals use I/O address ranges between 0 and 3FF
hex. If you have peripherals installed above 400h, you
may experience an I/O conflict. The first controller
determines the settings for additional controllers.
If connecting a system with an interface box:
a. Attach the male end of the RocketPort or
RocketPort RA cable to the controller and the
female end to the connector on the interface
box labeled Host.
Note: If you have a RocketPort 32 or RocketPort RA32,
the connector labelled J1 corresponds to ports 0
through 15 on the interface box and the connector
labeled J2 (closest to the bus) corresponds to ports
16 through 31.
b. Connect the peripherals to the interface box.
If connecting a system with an Octacable:
a. Attach the male end of the Octacable to the
controller.
b. Connect the Octacable to the peripherals.
Note: If you need pinout information, see the Hardware
Reference Card that came with your controller.

Installing the Controller
After you set the I/O DIP switch, you are ready to
install the controller. Use the following steps to install
the controller:
1. Turn the power switch for the system unit to the
OFF position.
2. Remove the system unit cover.
3. Select a slot to install the controller.
4. Remove the expansion slot cover.
5. Insert the controller in the expansion slot, make
sure that it is properly seated.
6. Attach the controller to the chassis with the
expansion slot screw.
7. Replace the cover on the system unit.

RocketPort and RocketModem
Driver Installation for Linux

Installation Procedure
Use this procedure to install the driver.
1. If you have not done so already, install the hardware using the Hardware
Installation documentation.
2. If necessary, download the current device driver, copy and extract the files to
the /usr/src directory on the Linux system. For example:
Change to the /usr/src directory and use the untar command.
cd /usr/src
tar xzvf filename.tar.gz
A subdirectory of /usr/src now exists called comtrol. This contains the
RocketPort/RocketModem driver and associated files.
3. Recompile the RocketPort/RocketModem driver.
Note: This is not always necessary, depending on the version of your kernel,
but it is safe to do.
make clean
make
4. Install the RocketPort/RocketModem driver as root:
make install
5. If you are using more than one ISA RocketPort/RocketModem board, or have
installed an ISA RocketPort or RocketModem board at a non-standard
address, you will need to set up the file /etc/rocketport.conf. The /usr/src/comtrol
directory contains a sample rocketport.conf file. Copy it to the /etc directory and
edit it according to the comments contained in the file.
Note: This step is NOT necessary, if you are using only PCI RocketPort or
RocketModem boards.
6. Optionally, edit your /etc/rc.d/rc.S file (or other appropriate boot-up script) so
that the rc.rocket script runs automatically each time your system boots. This
is done for you automatically if you are using a system with System V init files,
such as is used in the RedHat or Debian releases.
7. Either reboot to load the driver into the currently running system, or
manually load the driver running the rc.rocket script with the start argument.
For example:
/rc.rocket start
8. Configure your applications and/or your getty scripts as appropriate for your
application.
Note: The RocketModem looks to Linux like a RocketPort card with modems
attached; you can refer to the RocketModem AT command set on the
Comtrol CD or ftp/web sites.
9. For PCI-ONLY installation:
Edit the rocketport.conf script to remove or comment out the boardx=0xxx"
statement.
10. Optionally, edit your /etc/rc.d/rc.S† file so that the rc.rocket script runs
automatically each time the system boots. For example:
/bin/sh /etc/rc.d/rc.rocket
†This file may have a different file name, depending upon the Linux
distribution type.
Note: The rc.rocket script requires that setrocket be installed in the /bin
directory. The setrocket program creates the ttyRx devices (where x is a
number designating the port). The setrocket program is structured much
like the familiar setserial program, and performs a similar function.

RocketPort Series
QNX 4.xx Device Driver
Installation Reference Card

Scope
Use this Reference Card to configure and install up to
three Comtrol RocketPort series multiport serial cards
and QNX4.XX device driver.

Prerequisites
The following are required to use this device driver:
• QNX level 4.XX operating system
• An ISA- or PCI-based machine
Note: This Reference Card assumes that you are
familiar with the QNX 4.XX operating system.

Installing RocketPort Systems
Use the following procedure to install and configure
RocketPort series systems with the QNX 4.XX device
driver.
Note: Refer to the Hardware Reference Card for
hardware installation information or use the
Readme file that came with the driver.
If you are installing a RocketPort ISA in an EISA-bus
computer, you may need the EISA configuration files.
The EISA configuration files are available on the
Comtrol ftp site or the diskette that contains the
Diagnostics for the RocketPort series.

Loading the Driver
Before loading the driver, make sure that you have
installed the RocketPort ISA or PCI cards. If you are
installing an ISA card, it may be necessary to change
the
I/O address (default is 180) setting. Use the Hardware
Reference Card or the readme file for hardware
installation procedures.
To load the driver, issue the following command line
from either the command prompt or from the /etc/
config/sysinit file. See the Quickstart discussion for
sample command lines.
If you are installing RocketPort PCI cards, they are
detected before any of the RocketPort ISA cards and you
do not need to specify I/O addresses or IRQs for
RocketPort PCI cards. The system determines the order
of the PCI cards.

Resolving Installation Problems
If installation fails or you are trying to resolve a
problem, you should try the following before calling the
Comtrol technical support line:
• Check the signals between your peripherals and the
interface box to verify that they match (if applicable).
See the appropriate Hardware Reference Card for
information.
• Check to make sure the cables are connected
properly.
• Reseat the card in the slot.
• Make sure that the expansion slot screw was
replaced after inserting the card.
• Check for possible I/O address conflicts using the
following table.
If you have not been able to get the card operating:
1. Turn off your PC and insert the diagnostic diskette.
2. Boot the PC and following the instructions provided
by the diagnostic diskette.

DISCLAIMER

This is not the recommended solution for multiport serial board
development. You should consider some standard solutions prior to
committing to this RocketPort specific code. Consider using Comtrol's MSDOS
INT14-FOSSIL driver which is a MSDOS TSR. The advantage here is that
other drivers for standard com-ports and other multiport products exist,
and the driver is a separate component maintained by Comtrol.
The INT14-FOSSIL driver can perform as a standard INT14 PC COMM BIOS
driver or as a more powerful INT14 FOSSIL driver. An INT14 FOSSIL
driver is an enhanced INT14-BIOS driver which
is capable of block reads and writes. The FOSSIL INT14 extensions
have been popular for BBS use. The INT14-FOSSIL driver can also be
run in multiple DOS-BOXes in a multitasking environment.
The INT14-FOSSIL driver also contains sample C code to make
your development easier.

So in other words, please DO NOT use this DOSAPI tool set if you
do not have to. Download and attempt to use the MSDOS INT14/FOSSIL
driver for MSDOS development. Download and use the Windows driver
for Windows development.

Comtrol will provide no additional development assistance with this
code. What you see is what you get. We will be happy to accept
bug reports, and to attempt to maintain this code, but we will not
offer general development assistance.

Examples:

* If the RocketPort hardware does not satisfy your needs, or
you feel it is not documentation adequately, we cannot offer
additional help. Further hardware documentation is considered
proprietary, and is not available.

* If you want to compile this code using a GUI tool set(Visual-C)
you are on your own, we will not provide assistance in doing so.

* If you need to use the HUGE memory model, we cannot provide
assistance in doing so. You are expected to have the software
expertise.

* If this code set does not function for you, it is assumed that
you have the expertise to fix it. We cannot offer direct
assistance in doing so.

DISCLAIMER, REAL TIME DEVELOPMENT

The RocketPort hardware is not a good choice for generating
event based interrupts. If you are looking for hardware which
is very proficient at generating interrupts, then look at
16550 hardware. The RocketPort hardware is geared at moving
lots of data efficiently, preferably without interrupts.
INSTALLING

To install, make a new directory and copy the DOSAPI.ZIP file into it.
Then run>PKUNZIP -D DOSAPI.ZIP
(Use the -D option to unpack the directory structure.)
This should unpack things and you should find a
SAMPLE, TEXT and BAUD directory within this directory.

To test the installation, go into the SAMPLE directory and run
TERML.EXE. The TERM.C program uses a new auto-detect feature
aaAutoConfig() which requires no installation setup. It will
perform the appropriate PCI-BIOS calls to locate any PCI boards,
and will also search for ISA-boards.

DRIVER: 6546 (RCKTFOSS.EXE, RFSMALL.EXE, RFMULTI.EXE)
VERSION: 1.71
REVISED: 12/15/97

OVERVIEW
======================================
RCKTFOSS is a DOS terminate-stay-resident (TSR) program that
provides a software interface for controlling RocketPort serial
cards. The "FIDO/Opus/SEAdog Standard Interface Layer" (FOSSIL)
has been a longtime standard for connecting BBS software to
multiport serial cards. INT14 BIOS functions are also supported
with the -j option.

RCKTFOSS requires a approximately 60K of memory and can
be loaded into high memory using the DOS 'loadhigh' command.
A non-buffered version, RFSMALL, is included which takes only
24K of memory. RFMULTI is another version which will work with
multiple RocketPort cards.

HELP
======================================
This driver includes command line help. To access help,
type RCKTFOSS -H at the DOS command line and press Enter.

LOADING THE DRIVER
======================================
To load the driver, issue the following DOS command line from
either the DOS prompt or a batch file:

[loadhigh] rcktfoss [-option -option]

Example: rcktfoss -p180 -c3 -l38400 -mn8

The options are explained in detail following the QUICKSTART.

QUICKSTART
======================================
Here are some typical driver configurations:

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c3 -mn8
Multiport setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 8 ports
starting at COM3 (FOSSIL & INT14 Port:2). The RocketPort base
address is 180H.

rcktfoss.exe -b -c3 -mn8 -l38400
Multiport setup for PCI-bus RocketPort. This supports 8 ports
starting at COM3 (FOSSIL Port:2). Baud Rates will be locked
at 38400 for all ports.

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c1
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 1 port
(COM1,fossil:0). It will use the first port on the RocketPort.

rcktfoss.exe -p180 -c1 -o1
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort. This supports 1 port
using the 2nd port on the RocketPort board, but the program
will see it as COM1.

rcktfoss.exe -j -p180 -f0 -l9600
Single port setup for ISA-bus RocketPort using INT14 BIOS calls.
The base address is 180H, flow control is set to none (-f0),
and the baud rate is locked at 9600.

rfmulti.exe -mn24 -p180,100 -k8,16
Multiport, multiple board setup for two ISA-bus RocketPorts.
First RocketPort has 8 ports and a base I/O address of 180h,
while second RocketPort has 16 ports and a base I/O address
of 100h.

INSTALLATION PREREQUISITES

1. This guide assumes that you have already installed the
Windows NT operating system (OS) and that you understand
OS operation. This product was developed and tested
using Windows NT Release 3.51, Windows NT Release 4.0,
BackOffice 4.0, Terminal Server 4.0, and Citrix WinFrame
Release 1.7.

These instructions are based on Windows NT Release 4.0.
If you are using another version, adapt the instructions
as needed.

2. You must have at least one RocketPort or RocketModem
adapter installed before installing this driver. See the
hardware documentation for more information.

3. If you are using NT 3.51 or an early version of NT 4.0
with no service packs applied, and using the
RocketPort/RocketModem adapter to provide dial-in (RAS)
access to the NT server, verify that NetBEUI is installed
before installing RAS.

Under NT 4.0, RAS will not work properly unless you have
at least Service Pack 3 applied. For more information
about service packs and updates, contact Microsoft.

4. If you are installing the RocketPort/RocketModem in a
server without an existing network adapter (NIC), you
must install network services and the Microsoft Loopback
Adapter software first. See the Microsoft documentation
for more information.

5. Finally, if you are upgrading from an earlier version of
the RocketPort/RocketModem device driver software, you
must remove the old software before installing this new
version. DO NOT use the Update option.
