I am trying to use the serial port of a HP Envizex II X-terminal to
connect a digitizer to. I have figured that I need to run a hpnptyd
daemon to make a network connection between the serial port and a
/dev/pty... device. However, when I run the daemon, the error log says
"Connection refused". I have enabled the serial port form the config
screen to be used as a "Tablet". None of the other choices seemed any
When the X-terminal boots, as it discovers the devices it shows an icon
for it, including an icon of a tablet, which I presume would enable the
serial port, but connection is still refused.
Q1: The default TCP port number which hpnptyd uses is 9100, is that the
right port? What would it be for the second serial port, or the paralle
port. I notices that x199 port is contactable, but does not work (where
x can have many values, such as 1, 2, 3, ....20, ...)
Q2: Is there something else I am missing in the config screen.
Q3. Has anybody out there done what I am trying to do?
Q4. Am I on the right track?
Thanks for any info.
