I have an Overo plugged into a Tobi break-out board. If I connect a USB lead between the OTG and a host (Windows or Linux) I get:
g_ticam gadget: high speed config #1: CDC Serial with RNDIS
On the windows PC the VCP enumerates, so (using e.g. TeraTerm) I can communicate with the Gumstix – no problem.
On the Ubuntu host, however, I am unable to persuade PuTTY to open up a serial link. What do I have to do to connect my Linux machine to the Gumstix VCP?
PS I have used PuTTY in the past with FTDI USB-to-serial converter cables with /dev/ttyUSB0 as the serial line.
