RE: RS-485 problem


If you disable the option you can't use 2-wire 485, i.e. the IOCTL
available. If you enable the option you can use the IOCTL above to
switch between 
RS422 and RS485 (2-wire mode) by setting the enable-parameter to 0
(RS422) or 1 (RS485).

Hello there

We're using a devboard 83.  What does the 'Enable RS-485 support' option
in the kernel mean? 

Am I right in saying that when this option is disabled that I'm using
RS-422 and when it is enabled that I'm using RS-485?

We have two devboard 83's connected to each other via RS-485.

When transmitting data to /dev/ttyS3 from one board to the other using 

echo "hello" > /dev/ttyS3

it works fine, but when doing the same from the other board that
received the data earlier, 

the command doesn't respond i.e. the board hangs until I press CTRL C.

Any suggestions are welcome.
