Card Installation
Use the following procedure to install the board.
1. Turn off your computer and remove the CompactPCI expansion slot front
panel cover.
Note: You may want to write down the model number and serial number of
the board before installation.
2. Insert the board into the slot, seating it securely.
3. Lift the front panel handle to lock the board into place.
4. Fasten the expansion slot retaining screws.
5. Attach the interface that came with your board using the appropriate
procedure.
• Installing a Standard Interface Box (below)
• Installing a Rack Mount Interface Box on Page 3
Installing a
Standard Interface
Box
1. Attach the male end of the RocketPort cable to the board and the female end to
the connector labeled Host on the interface box.
Note: The male DB25 port labeled Host is reserved for connection to the
RocketPort controller and no user accessible signals are present at this
port.
2. Tighten the connector retaining screws.
3. If applicable, use the slide switches on the interface box to set each port to
either RS-232 or RS-422.
4. Use the software installation and configuration document for your operating
system, with the driver to complete your installation.
For the latest software and documentation, go to http://support.comtrol.com/
download.asp.
Note: After installing the hardware, you must install the device driver for your
operating system.
5. Verify that the ports are functioning properly and connect your peripheral
devices.
Installing a Rack
Mount Interface Box
The RM16-RJ45 design allows you to stack several units on a shelf, or you can
mount it directly into a rack.
1. Place the unit on a stable
surface, or attach the L
brackets to the interface
using the screws supplied
with the unit, and attach the L bracket into your rack.
Note: You can mount the unit
facing in either direction.
2. Attach the 3-foot cable or the 3-
foot and the 10-foot cables
together between the interface
and the board.
Note: The cables are interchangeable. You may connect either or both cables
depending upon the distance between the board and the rack. The
maximum distance permitted between the interface box and board is 15
feet.
3. Use the software installation and configuration document for your operating
system, with the driver to complete your installation.
For the latest software and documentation, go to http://support.comtrol.com/
download.asp.
Note: After installing the hardware, you must install the device driver for your

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.

Using MiniCom to Test
Comtrol Serial Ports

This procedure discusses how to use MiniCom in Linux to test ports using a null-modem cable connected
between two ports. If necessary, cabling information is available in each product’s hardware installation
documentation.
Note: This document uses ports ttyR0 and ttyR1 in the examples. You will

Note: Linux is case sensitive, be sure to use the proper case. tty is lower case, R, V and SI are in uppercase.
Instructions for testing modem products are included at the end of this document.
Testing Serial Ports
Use this procedure to test serial ports:
1. Verify that the driver has been installed and loaded using the installation documentation.
2. Connect a null-modem cable to Ports 0 and 1 on the device.
3. Log in to Linux if you have not already do so.
4. At the system prompt, change directory to the /dev directory so that a listing of the created Comtrol ports
may be seen.
[[email protected]/root]# cd /dev
5. List the Comtrol ports.
[[email protected]localhost/dev]# ls ttyR*
This should show the tty ports that have been installed beginning at 0 (zero) and sequentially numbered
to the highest port on the device. For example, a RocketPort 16 has ttyR0 through ttyR15 displays as:
ttyR0 ttyR10 ttyR12 ttyR14 ttyR2 ttyR4 ttyR6 ttyR8
ttyR1 ttyR11 ttyR13 ttyR15 ttyR3 ttyR5 ttyR7 ttyR9
6. Return to the home directory:
[[email protected]/dev]# cd ..
7. Start Minicom with the setup option to configure the appropriate port.
[[email protected]/root]# minicom -s
The following warning message may appear:
minicom:Warning: Configuration file not found, using defaults
The following screen should appear:
[Configuration]
Filenames and paths

Exit from Minicom
8. Using the up and down arrow keys select Serial port setup. The following window should appear:
A - Serial Device : /dev/modem
B - Lockfile Location : /var/lock
C - Callin Program
D - Callout Program
E - Bps/Par/Bits : 38400 8N1
F - Hardware Flow Control : Yes
G - Software Flow Control : No
Change which setting?
9. Enter a and the cursor should move to the end of A - Serial Device : /dev/modem.
10. Using the backspace key, change modem to ttyRx (
where x is a number of the port to test. This example uses Ports 0 for the first terminal window, so the
line should read, A - Serial Device : /dev/ttyRx
Note: Linux is case sensitive, be sure to use the proper case. In this the first terminal window we will use
Port 0, so the line should read A - Serial Device : /dev/ttyR0
11. With the cursor at the Change which setting? option, press the Enter key to close this screen and return to
the configuration screen.
