Serial Port (Netfinity 7000 - 8651)
The server comes with two serial ports.
(Refer to 'Input/Output Connectors and Expansion Slots' for the locations of the connectors.) These
ports are used to communicate with printers. plotters,
external modems, scanners, and auxiliary terminals.
These ports also enable you to transfer data between computers.
Serial ports can transfer data asynchronously, which
means that they can transmit any number of characters at
any time, with no restriction on the duration of the pauses
The serial ports can transmit and receive data and
commands at rates of from 300 bits per second up to
345600 bits per second. To use a serial port at 345600
bits per second, you need a special shielded cable,
Each serial port has a 9-pin, male D-shell connector on the
back of the server, The pin-number assignments of this
connector conform to the industry standard,
When you power-on the server. the POST routine assigns
the serial ports to specific communication port addresses,
Some application programs use only certain ports, and
some modems are designed for use only at certain
communication pod addresses, You might need to use the
System Configuration Utility program to change
communication port address assignments to resolve conflicts,
