Hello! I have always had difficulty in the area of setting up a modem on Solaris (or any Unix for that matter). I have X86 Solaris 2.5 installed on a Dell Pentium. Everything works fine. Except when I decided to set up the serial port and use my modem, I get errors. One prominent one is that there is no device available using cu. Using tip, i get the ports are busy. Can someone help? What do I need to look for? I used admintool to set up the serial port as modem-bidirectional.

Thanks much in advance!
