SI 4 or 8 port modules. Up to 57600 bps on each port supported.
XIO 8 port modules. Up to 115200 bps on each port supported. One type of XIO module has 7 serial and 1 parallel port.
SXDC 8 port modules. Up to 921600 bps on each port supported. Like XIO, a module is available with one parallel port as well.
To configure an ISA host card, add the following line to your kernel configuration file, changing the numbers as appropriate:
device si0 at isa? iomem 0xd0000 irq 11
Valid IRQ numbers are 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15 for SX ISA host cards and 11, 12 and 15 for SI/XIO ISA host cards.
To configure an EISA or PCI host card, use this line:
device si0
After adding the configuration entry, rebuild and install your new kernel.
The following step, is not necessary if you are using <citerefentry vendor="current"><refentrytitle>devfs</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry> in FreeBSD 5.<replaceable>X</replaceable>.
After rebooting with the new kernel, you need to make the device nodes in <filename>/dev</filename>. The <filename>MAKEDEV</filename> script will take care of this for you. Count how many total ports you have and type:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>cd /dev</userinput>
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>./MAKEDEV ttyA<replaceable>nn</replaceable> cuaA<replaceable>nn</replaceable></userinput>
(where <replaceable>nn</replaceable> is the number of ports)
If you want login prompts to appear on these ports, you will need to add lines like this to <filename>/etc/ttys</filename>:
ttyA01 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" vt100 on insecure
Change the terminal type as appropriate. For modems, <userinput>dialup</userinput> or <userinput>unknown</userinput> is fine.
