Here's what I have:
tty00   "/usr/libexec/getty std.19200"  vt100   on secure local # serial con

I have tried with & without local, on/off, and 2400 vs 19200.
Right now, yes, the vt100 is set on 19.2kbps (didn't know they could
go that high!)

Hmm.. don't know.
I can tell both systems are actually asserting RTS, TxD, and DTR.
But the vt100 gets no prompt, and no response when I hit keys.

I have no problem talking to my modem on another serial port but it's
a DCE with a straight-through cable.
