Hi,

I am still stuck because I can't know the syntax to run usbdump. usbdump 
says use the id's provided by lsusb but I forgot to install 
sysutils/usbutils while I still had the EC1261 Huawei stick.

Can someone please send me the sources for this port (sysutils/usbutils) 
? I will need the complete sources for PORTVERSION 0.86 as a gzipped tar 
(please remove freebsd-questions@freebsd.org from addresses if sending), 
as I cannot currently connect my FreeBSD box to the internet.

BTW, cuaU0[.*] are always there on my system, whether my EC1561 stick is 
plugged in or not. So I am surely using the wrong device as the modem. 
The following lines are there in my devfs.conf :

link ugen0.2 usv
own usv root:operator
perm usv 666

link cuaU0.0 modem
own modem root:operator
perm modem 666


Thank you &
