Machine Ports

Most machines either have no serial ports, or one DE9 serial port. Details of other configurations are listed here.

taurine

taurine has a virtual serial port that can be accessed via telnet or SSH

ttyS0 physical DE9
ttyS1 virtual

ascorbic-acid

ascorbic-acid has two Sun 8P8C serial ports stacked vertically, with the first port on top

A (ttyS0, LOM)
B (ttyS1)

These ports should be connected to another system's DE9 using a DE9<->8P8C modular jack and an Almost Rollover or standard rollover.

potassium-citrate

potassium-citrate has two DE9 serial ports side by side, with the second port on the left

101102 (ttyS1) 101101 (ttyS0)

citric-acid

citric-acid has two DE9 serial ports stacked vertically, with the second port on the bottom, and a dead DE9 labeled "modem" to its right

ttyS0 X
ttyS1 modem

sodium-citrate

sodium-citrate has two DE9 serial ports side by side, with the second port on the left

ttyS1 ttyS0

caramel-colour

caramel-colour has two DE9 serial ports

ttyS0 on motherboard I/O shield
ttyS1 on motherboard in a PCI header

phosphoric-acid

phosphoric-acid has two DE9 serial ports

ttyS0 on motherboard I/O shield
ttyS1 on motherboard in a PCI header

dumbterm

dumbterm has one DB25 serial port. It is currently connected a black nonstandard DB25<->8P8C adapter, to a special twisted pair cable, to a nonstandard 8P8C<->DE9 adapter. All of these pieces are labeled "dumbterm". The dumbterm cable is not symmetric; the end labeled "DE-9" must be plugged into the DE-9 adapter.
