Hi everyone!

I have a minicom configured on Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS, and a 8 ports breakout cable.

Right now, it looks like this:

[email protected]:~# dmesg | grep ttyS
[    0.834637] 00:06: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    0.857073] 0000:03:02.0: ttyS4 at I/O 0xdc40 (irq = 18, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    0.878417] 0000:03:02.0: ttyS5 at I/O 0xdc48 (irq = 18, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    0.899828] 0000:03:02.0: ttyS6 at I/O 0xdc50 (irq = 18, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    0.921276] 0000:03:02.0: ttyS7 at I/O 0xdc58 (irq = 18, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    0.942768] 0000:03:02.0: ttyS8 at I/O 0xdc60 (irq = 18, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    0.964325] 0000:03:02.0: ttyS9 at I/O 0xdc68 (irq = 18, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    0.985918] 0000:03:02.0: ttyS10 at I/O 0xdc70 (irq = 18, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    1.007561] 0000:03:02.0: ttyS11 at I/O 0xdc78 (irq = 18, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A

And when I want to connect to one of the consoles, I use the below command (example for ttyS4, the first cable):
[email protected]:~# minicom -D /dev/ttyS4

The thing is that this minicom was configured in the past by someone else and it had a different configuration, for example when I would connect to ttyS4 I would use the command "minicom p19600" where the 9600 would be the speed (although it had it configured by default to 9600, I would still have had to change it to 115200 for example and also do a minicom reconfiguration if needed to connect to a device with different speed). The commands to access the consoles were "minicom p19600" - "minicom p89600".

    |    Change which setting?   


I have read a lot of topics and links found on google, but can't seem to figure out how to change this configuration to how it was before. I broke it by mistake when playing with this ubuntu install, not sure when I have deleted the old config file.

Is there someone who can help me by pointing me in the right direction? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
