I'm kinda new to reading the list so I had no idea whether you're experienced
or not. Don't be offended by this because I have no idea about your ability =)
rm -f /dev/modem; ln -s /dev/cua1 /dev/modem
the com port is one lower than normal since it starts /dev/cua0 for com1.
Um apart from this I have no idea. I've never had problems with Linux
reading my modem. The reasoning above is to delete /dev/modem and then to
create a NEW link to com2.
Hoping this helps (again if you've tried this apologies)
