Serial Ports

The Octane2 workstation serial ports can operate in one of several modes:

  • RS-232 electrical levels with a standard PC pinout.

  • Macintosh-style electrical levels and a Macintosh-compatible pinout (This mode requires an additional adapter cable. See “Serial Port Adapter Cables”).

  • ANSI/SMPTE 207M electrical levels and pinout (This mode requires an additional adapter cable. See “Serial Port Adapter Cables”).

The following diagram shows the PC-compatible pinout. The range of supported baud rates is 300 baud to 460K baud.

Serial Cables and Adapters

This section contains cable pinout information for serial cables that you can connect to your Octane2 workstation. It also describes SGI serial port converters. The following topics are covered:

Printer/Dumb Terminal Serial Cable

For serial printers and dumb terminals, use a 3-wire standard PC cable. Table B-10 shows the cable connector pinout assignments for this cable.


Note: For a 3-wire cable and no hardware flow control modem, you must use the /dev/ttyd* command devices in the configuration files. For more detailed information, see the serial man page. To access the man page, choose Toolchest >Help > InfoSearch > Man pages. Or place the cursor in the console window and type:


man serial

PC Modem Serial Cable

Use a full-handshake (includes RTS and CTS) PC modem serial cable for a modem with RTS/CTS flow control. Table B-11 shows the cable connector pin assignments for this cable.

You can use this cable for all serial devices except those that do not need RTS flow control. If you add a null modem adapter to one end of the cable, you can still use it with devices like serial printers and dumb terminals that do not need RTS flow control. You can purchase the full-handshake PC modem serial cable from SGI or your local service provider.


Note: If you are attaching a modem with modem signals and RTS/CTS flow control, you must use the /dev/ttyf* command devices in the configuration files. For more detailed information, see the serial man page. To access this man page, choose Toolchest > Help > InfoSearch > Man pages. Or place the cursor in the console window and type:

Serial Port Adapter Cables

The Octane2 workstation's serial ports conform to the PC standard pinout for EIA standard RS-232 signals.

The purpose of the adapter cable is to allow the Octane2 workstation to use standard PC or Macintosh serial devices.
