The port probably has an atypical device name that needs to be added to
You can add the port to the list and recompile just the java files to
generate a new jar and it should work. It is also possible to override
port names with properties.
A way to test your port without doing any of this is to create a symbolic
link from the device file to /dev/ttyS32 for instance. RXTX should detect
the port as /dev/ttyS* are enumerated.
