It's not hard. Have a file "port" in /etc/uucp with something like this in

and then say this in your neighbor-specific system file:
and you'd ought to be good.
The only other thing you might want to do is move away from the traditional
'g' or 'f' protocols, as TCP is a reliable transport, and can thus use the
't' protocol, which assumes a reliable, error-free connection.
