Referencing the port
To access a modem directly:
Examine the file /etc/uucp/Dialers
for an entry to
be used for a ``direct'' connection.
The label will be ``direct''
Note which label is used, since it must be the same in the
Examine the file /etc/uucp/Devices
to be sure that
there is a direct entry for the port where your modem is attached.
The correct device name for a device on COM1
is one of
``term/00'', ``term/00s'', ``term/00h'',
``tty1a'' or ``tty1A''.
The correct device name for a device on COM2
is one of
``term/01'', ``term/01s'', ``term/01h'',
Note that the logical device names point to separate drivers.
These differ based on the baud rate and UART values.
for information on the driver you need and how
to establish the appropriate reference in the Devices file.
If there is no entry for your requirements, add
the port as a direct line in /etc/uucp/Devices
using either the direct or direct_modem label,
depending on the label found in the Dialers file,
Direct term/00 - Any direct_modem
command to access the modem, for example:
cu -l term/00
When the direct connection is established (cu executes successfully),
you can enter AT (Attention) data communications commands
as well as modem configuration commands specific to your modem software.
