Here is a blast from the past, comms over serial modems
I need to setup 2 fedora core 5 machines such that a connection can be initiated at either end via these modems. I would prefer to explicitly start & stop the connection process myself rather than rely upon ppp etc to automatically set them up and close them down.
The connection will need to allow command-line login and also ftp in one direction.
I can handle the ftp conversation once the connection between the machines is made.
