get my actisense ngt-1 to work……


Ok next project. Got this thing thing. An usb-cord on one end a round plug on the other end, and a red transparant thing in the middle:

Plugged the thing in my computer it started to flash red. But for the rest NOTHING, just some notification in dmesg that something was plugged in in a usb-port.

Long search, short answer: ‘do something with ftdi_sio drivers’ :

sudo modprobe ftdi_sio vendor=0x0403 product=0xd9aa

This device is always connected, so no udev rules. But to be effective at boot time I added a line to /ect/modules:

echo ftdi_sio >> /etc/modules

and created a file /etc/modprobe.d/actisense.conf:

echo options ftdi_sio vendor=0x0403 product=0xd9aa >> /etc/modprobe.d/actisense.conf

Now a device /dev/ttyUSB0 is created. When the ntg-1 is plugged in. Owner is root and belonging to group dialout.

So I had to add myself to this dialout group (don’t forget the -a):

sudo usermod -aG dialout knilluz

Testing can be done with packetlogger downloaded from Keversoft
