I'm having trouble connecting to the modem port with 'cu'.  From the SLIP faq:

        % cu -l /dev/tty00 -s 19200  (assumes your modem is on the modem port)

The above produces an error:
        /dev/tty00: Permission denied.
        /dev/tty00: Line in use.


I've checked that /etc/ttys has tty00 set to "unknown off secure", and ps
-ax doesn't show any getty's for tty00.

I noticed that alot of the old documentation suggested using /dev/ser0 for
connections to the serial port instead of /dev/tty00; is that a
pre-NETBSD1.0 configuration?

For fun, I tried issuing "dip com0c" since I noticed that /etc/remote
listed com0c as using tty00.  This produced a "Line down" message.  Any
pointers on taming the rogue serial port would be appreciated.
