  • Help regarding access to serial port in VMWare Player

    Hi there,

    I am using the pre-configured tos-virtual-machine inside of VMWare player to do my TOS programming. I am doing a small project in TinyOS and VMWare player has been very much useful to me. However, I am only being able to compile my program here but not able to download the program to the motes.
    I always make sure that the serial port is connected to the VMWarePlayer. When i attempt to load the program to the motes by using the command:
    make mica2 reinstall mib510,/dev/ttyS1

    It prompts with:
    installing mica2 bianary using mib510
    uisp -dprog=mib510 -dserial=/dev/ttyS --wr_fuse_h=0xd9 -dpart=ATmega128 --wr_fuse_e=ff --erase --upload if=build/mica2/main.srec.out
    Progarammer is not responding.
    make:***[program] Error 2

    I even tried to download it by changing the port number but the same errror message resulted.
    Is this because the serial port is not connected to VMWare? But i have made sure that it is connected and there is a clear deprssed button of the serial port indicating the connection at the top.

    Can anyone please suggest somehting. Your help will be appreciated.
