  • I added the FTDI drivers on Kali Linux, connected the mini USB interface to my PC and I got the following output in dmesg:

    [71621.642321] usb 2-1.4: new full-speed USB device number 13 using ehci_hcd
    [71621.743948] usb 2-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=0403, idProduct=6001
    [71621.743952] usb 2-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    [71621.743954] usb 2-1.4: Product: FT232R USB UART
    [71621.743955] usb 2-1.4: Manufacturer: FTDI
    [71621.743957] usb 2-1.4: SerialNumber: A601LM9M
    [71621.746558] ftdi_sio 2-1.4:1.0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter detected
    [71621.746580] usb 2-1.4: Detected FT232RL
    [71621.746582] usb 2-1.4: Number of endpoints 2
    [71621.746583] usb 2-1.4: Endpoint 1 MaxPacketSize 64
    [71621.746585] usb 2-1.4: Endpoint 2 MaxPacketSize 64
    [71621.746586] usb 2-1.4: Setting MaxPacketSize 64
    [71621.748490] usb 2-1.4: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB4

    But when I cat /dev/ttyUSB4 or minicom to it, I don't see anything. I've added the ID20LA to this and when I bring a 125kHz tag close to it nothing shows up, no lights light up... seems like I'm doing something wrong or it just doesn't work. The right drivers are seemingly picked up by the OS per the dmesg output. Any ideas?

No public wish lists :(
