Question socket on serial port

Does anyone know if it's possible to send socket by a serial port ?
If yes, how can I find on Irix the value of my serial ports to use with this function : serverSockAddr.sin_port = ?

Thanks for all responses !

Sockets are not 'sent' ; sockets are data structures used by TCP/IP connections (at the two ends of the connection).

Yes, you can do TCP/IP over a serial connection !! Smilie

Re: socket by serial port

Thanks Neo for your reply.

Can you help me again ?
Do you know where I can find the value of my serial ports on Irix (port 1 ?, 25 ?, 200 ?,... ?) because I have to specify it to connect my socket ?
