Solaris: How to Verify Serial Port Settings

This procedure lets you verify the baud rate and other serial port settings used by the Sun Fire V490 server to communicate with attached serial port devices.

You must be logged in to the Sun Fire V490 server, and the server must be running Solaris OS software.


1. Open a terminal tool window.

2. Type:

# eeprom ttya-mode

3. Look for the following output:

ttya-mode = 9600,8,n,1,-

This line indicates that the Sun Fire V490 server’s serial port is configured for:

* 9600 baud

* 8 bits

* No parity

* 1 stop bit

* No handshake protocol
