Configuring terminal line settings
port monitor that is started by the SAC daemon
looks in its own administrative file
for the TTY ports it has to initialize.
For each TTY port that it initializes,
ttymon searches the ttydefs
file for the information it needs
to set terminal modes and line speeds.
ttymon then waits for service requests.
When a service request is received
and after the requester is authenticated,
executes the command (usually
associated with the port that received the request.
From the system administration point of view,
the key elements in managing terminal line settings
are the ttydefs file and the sttydefs
command, which maintains the ttydefs file.
