Serial: Printers, Modems, and Networks

Common problems with devices attached through the serial ports are more often software-related than hardware-related. For example, many serial printer problems revolve around making the correct selections from the Chooser desk accessory. These, and other printing problems, are explained in Chapter 7. Some problems with modems and with networks (especially as related to file sharing) are covered in Chapters 11 and 14.

To check for more general hardware problems with devices connected through the serial port, check the serial cables, the serial port, and the serial port peripheral device.
