[arm-allstar] interfacing BBB CI-V serial connections

 I am not familiar with xcat but there are many CI-V to USB converters out there. I would make sure it has the FTDI chipset. The BBB has the ftdi library loaded. I have not tried it but it should work. Of course you would use a USB hub and the 1.2 version coming out. You could also use a usb to serial converter but technically that is the same thing only less specialized. CI-V is a serial data stream.

Subject: [arm-allstar] interfacing BBB CI-V serial connections

Hello, group!From what I understand, the most popular way of interfacing app_rpt and an xcat is by way of CI-V. This is done normally with a motherboard's serial port going to an existing serial connection on the xcat itself.
Is there support in the current BBB image for, say, a USB-serial converter? Is there any way to make a serial "CI-V"  connection from the BBB to the xcat?
Thanks for reading and 73
