Beaglebone Black Serial Port Access problem

Hi All,

I’ve just received a BBB. I followed “Get Started” instructions by plugging USB cable into PC.
How can i set a serial port. I am not seeing ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB1 interface in /dev directory.
Do i need to connect FTDI cable to get ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB1 interface.

Thanks & Regards,

That is because the BBB does not have this feature like the original BeagleBone . You have to use an external cable as described here.
