I tried to execute the osmocon command (sudo ./osmocon -p /dev/tty/USB0) using strace. The output is as follows:

====== strace output ends========

The output of $ sudo stty -F /dev/ttyUSB0 is

=== stty output starts===
speed 115200 baud; line = 0;
-brkint -imaxbel
=== stty output ends===

Whereas setserial command (sudo setserial -a /dev/ttyUSB0) gives this error:

Cannot get serial info: Inappropriate ioctl for device

What can be wrong with my PC to phone communication
