Is it true?

If I have a line in /etc/tty as,

tty00	"/usr/libexec/getty ppp.115200"	unknown	off rtscts

and a line in /etc/remote:


When I try to tip(1),

	taca@ns[193]:tip com0

But I type something,

	Lost carrier.

Then I change the line in /etc/tty as

tty00	"/usr/libexec/getty ppp.115200"	unknown	off rtscts mdmbuf

and executing ttyflags(8) as

	root@ns[114]:ttyflags -v tty00     
	ttyflags: setting flags on /dev/tty00 to rtscts|mdmbuf

Then I can using tip(1) successfully.  So, I still needed ttyflags(8)
to set tty's parameter, what's wrong with me or tip(1) has some
