-1. Usage
-~~~~~~~~
- The drivers/usb/class/cdc-acm.c drivers works with USB modems and USB ISDN terminal
-adapters that conform to the Universal Serial Bus Communication Device Class
-Abstract Control Model (USB CDC ACM) specification.
-
- Many modems do, here is a list of those I know of:
-
- 3Com OfficeConnect 56k
- 3Com Voice FaxModem Pro
- 3Com Sportster
- MultiTech MultiModem 56k
- Zoom 2986L FaxModem
- Compaq 56k FaxModem
- ELSA Microlink 56k
-
- I know of one ISDN TA that does work with the acm driver:
-
- 3Com USR ISDN Pro TA
-
- Some cell phones also connect via USB. I know the following phones work:
-
- SonyEricsson K800i
-
- Unfortunately many modems and most ISDN TAs use proprietary interfaces and
-thus won't work with this drivers. Check for ACM compliance before buying.
-
- To use the modems you need these modules loaded:
-
- usbcore.ko
- uhci-hcd.ko ohci-hcd.ko or ehci-hcd.ko
- cdc-acm.ko
-
- After that, the modem[s] should be accessible. You should be able to use
-minicom, ppp and mgetty with them.
-
-2. Verifying that it works
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- The first step would be to check /proc/bus/usb/devices, it should look
-like this:
-
-T: Bus=01 Lev=00 Prnt=00 Port=00 Cnt=00 Dev#= 1 Spd=12 MxCh= 2

-E: Ad=04(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl= 0ms
-
-The presence of these three lines (and the Cls= 'comm' and 'data' classes)
-is important, it means it's an ACM device. The Driver=acm means the acm
-driver is used for the device. If you see only Cls=ff(vend.) then you're out
-of luck, you have a device with vendor specific-interface.

-D: Ver= 1.00 Cls=02(comm.) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 2

-In the system log you should see:
-

-If all this seems to be OK, fire up minicom and set it to talk to the ttyACM
-device and try typing 'at'. If it responds with 'OK', then everything is
-working.
