UCOM(4)                  BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                  UCOM(4)

NAME
     ucom -- USB tty support

SYNOPSIS
     device ucom

DESCRIPTION
     The ucom driver attaches to USB modems, serial ports, and other devices
     that need to look like a tty.  The ucom driver shows a behavior like a
     tty(4).  This means that normal programs such as tip(1) or pppd(8) can be
     used to access the device.

     The portno locater can be used to decide which port to use for devices
     that have multiple external ports.

FILES
     /dev/ucom?

HISTORY
     The ucom driver was adopted from NetBSD in March of 2002.  This manual
     page was adopted from NetBSD by Tom Rhodes <trhodesATFreeBSD.org> in April
     2002.
