I need to enable RS-485 for the first time on my graphics client plus board. Do I need a specific vxworks serial driver for RS-485 or is this already included in the ADS/Vxworks BSP?

I responded to John directly. For the benefit of other readers, here's a summary:

The RS-485 drivers aren't part of the current VxWorks release. Options include:
1. Using J1708 if your application can use half-duplex RS-485.
2. Modifying the VxWorks serial drivers for RS-485
3. Having ADS create the 485 drivers

ADS is dedicated to working with our customers to ensure their programs' success. Keep letting us know how we can help!

p.s. I've moved this to the VxWorks FAQ for reference by other VxWorks users.
