I am working with Sun Solaris 9 sparc and in my application,I have to communicate with the serial port.
For every connection we made, in Solaris it creates a process.Are you talking about 'telnet' or 'ssh'? Those work differently from serial connections.
So Can anyone tell me the name of the process when we connect serial cable??You might have a login listener if you configure it, otherwise, nothing is running.
You need to provide more details about how you intend to use the serial cable. I can't tell from your post.
In my application,I am conneting a UPS and I have to monitor it via getting and sending the information using serial port or contact-closure.
So It should read the data from the UPS.To do it,It should start the process to communicate with the UPS.
So I have to find out that process is bieng stated or not??
For that,first I need to know the process name...
So Please help me out to getting the process name ?
Thanks in Advance ...
Plugging in a serial cable doesn't do anything on the computer. It's not like USB where the machine is monitoring the port looking for something new. Instead you need to run a program that will poll the port explicitly.
Did the UPS come with a monitoring program for Solaris that you can install?
Here's a blog where somone talked about using a generic UPS monitor on Solaris 10.
You can also look at the source for apcupsd (at http://www.apcupsd.org) which talks to serial APC upses and see how it does it.
