Hi Pete,

Thanks for your response.
When I worked out how to get to root I tried setserial /dev/ttys3 it said
input/output error.  I tried setserial/dev/ttys3 it said no such file or
directory.

I found the man setserial and then tried setserial-g and setserial-a and
then I tried setserial -g and setserial -a

No of it gave me

The man file didn't make much sense apart from I didn't try anything that
said 'set' as there was a warning about locking up the computer.

Any further help gratefully received.

I have Redhat 9 and a Motorola SM56 Speakerphone modem, on com 4.  I just
want to get online.
