You need to configure /dev/cua2 so that it uses the proper IRQ and
port. By default, cua2 uses the same IRQ as cua0, but a different
port. This doesn't work. I don't know why they did it that way, but
they did. Try running the following command as root:
/sbin/setserial /dev/cua2 auto_irq autoconfigure
That tries to determine the correct IRQ and port to use. If it works,
then you're set, except that you'll need to do it everytime you boot.
Place the line in the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local so that it will be called
each time to boot.
If it doesn't work, and you know the IRQ, try
/sbin/setserial /dev/cua2 irq 5 autoconfigure
but replace 5 with the correct IRQ. If that doesn't work, you will need
to specify both the IRQ and the port used by the modem like this:
/sbin/setserial /dev/cua2 irq 5 port 220
but replace the 5 and 220 with the appropriate values. If you're using
Windows as well, you can get the correct values from the device manager.
If that doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you.
