Under EPICS 3.14.4 it works with mpfSerial.  mpfSerial talks to Unix,
Linux and vxWorks serial ports.  On vxWorks it works with both the
serial ports on the CPU card, and with the SBS IP-Octal, through Andrew
Johnson's ipac module.  I have tested the MM4000 under both vxWorks and
Linux on 3.14.4.

Note that there is currently no support for the SBS IP-488 module under
3.14, because support has been removed from MPF, and support is not yet
provided under Marty Kraimer's asynDriver
(http://www.aps.anl.gov/epics/modules/soft/asynDriver/ )
