Can you also attach the output of:

 #sudo setserial -a /dev/ttyS0
 #sudo setserial -a /dev/ttyS1

 If you could not find the 'setserial' command then you can install it by 'apt-get install setserial' from CLI.

And of course:

#sudo lspci -nnv'

Alos, you can give the output of:

#lsmod | grep "parport"
#modprobe -l | grep "parport"

Can you check that "/dev/ttyS2" exists, what does "ls -l /dev/ttyS2" output?
Also can you give the output of "lshal"?
