Can't get modem to work under Solaris 2.4

After following the manual for setting up this modem, I cannot get a login when I dial in from a PC or anything else. I have tried setting the modem to several different settings with the same result. I also think the serial port on the Solaris server is causing some problems. When I do a stty -a </dev/cua/a it reports 8 bits and No parity. When I connect to /dev/cua/a via cu -l it reports 7 bits and Even parity. How can I get this to work???

I recomend using admintool. The serial port setup tools and help are superb.

I found the answer after looking in some manuals and finding out how uucp and tip worked. It turns out that uucp/cu uses 7 data bits and Even parity, while tip uses 8 and None. Also I had to set the /etc/ttydefs line to software flow control.
