PHS8-P ttyUSBx communication question | Thales IoT Developer Community

July 13, 2016 - 10:07pm, 2357 views


I am a new user and I have already made some progress. First of all, let me give you some details about my setup:

- PHS8-P terminal from MC Technologies.

- Firmware version 3.32

- I am able to communicate to the serial port of the terminal from windows using PUTTY.


- I have configured the context (AT+CGDCONT).

- I am able to use the wwan0 interface in a linux computer (issuing the AT^SWWAN command from the windows computer).

As you can see, I am at a point where I am using two computers, but I need to use only one (linux) and do everything using the USB connection. My specific question is this: from linux, how can I communicate to the ttyUSBx ports? If I can do this, I can change the AT^SDPORT setting to 3 and do everything via USB from linux (I also need to use the GPS functionality). I have tried different ways to communicate to ttyUSBx without success.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!
