UMODEM(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     UMODEM(4)

NAME
     umodem -- USB modem support

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device usb
	   device ucom
	   device umodem

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   umodem_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The umodem	driver provides	support	for USB	modems in the Communication
     Device Class using	the Abstract Control Model.  These modems are basi-
     cally standard serial line	modems,	but they are accessed via USB instead.
     They support a regular AT command set.  The commands can either be	multi-
     plexed with the data stream or handled through separate pipes.  In	the
     latter case the AT	commands have to be given on a device separate from
     the data device.

     The device	is accessed through the	ucom(4)	driver which makes it behave
     like a tty(4).

     Devices supported by the umodem driver include:

     +o	 3Com 5605

HISTORY
     The umodem	driver appeared	in NetBSD 1.5.	This manual page was adopted
     from NetBSD by Tom	Rhodes <trhodes@FreeBSD.org> in	April 2002.

BUGS
     Only modems with multiplexed commands and data are	supported at the
     moment.
