Devices and I/O Ports (Server 330)

Devices and I/O Ports

Software recognizes ports from their port assignments. Each port must have a unique port assignment. The Setup  normally handles this, but you might have special hardware or software that requires you to change these assignments.

Select the Devices and I/O Ports choice to view or change the assignments for devices and input/output ports.

  1.  The infrared connector and Serial B connector share a single port  assignment. By default, the infrared connector is configured as Disabled.
  2.  The serial, parallel, and infrared ports, and the diskette drive must  have the same configuration in the Configuration/Setup utility programs and  the EISA Configuration Diskette. See 'Using the EISA Configuration Diskette' for more  information.
  3.  When you configure the parallel port as bidirectional, use an IEEE 1284-compliant  cable. The maximum length of the cable must not exceed 3  meters (9.8 feet).

You can add serial ports by installing a serial adapter in an expansion slot. See the documentation that was shipped with the serial adapter for information about port assignments.

The parallel port can be configured as bidirectional , that is, data can be both read from and written to a device. In bidirectional mode, the server supports Extended Capabilities Port (ECP) and Enhanced Parallel Port (EPP).

To display or change the assignments for devices, or the infrared, serial, or parallel ports:
  1.  Power-on the system. When the F1 prompt appears, press F1. The Configuration/Setup Utility menu appears.
  2.  Select Devices and I/O Ports.
  3.  Select a device or port; use the Left Arrow (<) and Right Arrow  (>) keys to advance through the settings available.

     The Devices and I/O Ports choice appears only on the full  Configuration/Setup menu.
