I was having a problem similar to this with tip (which I attempted
to set up correctly last night). I narrowed it down to the modification rights
on the file /dev/tty00. My question, how do you correctly set r/w
permissions for these files (ie, in a secure way??). I just set tty00
world readable/writeable, which works because I am the only user on the
system, and I won't tromp on UUCP (I don't think?). But the user/group
for the lock files is UUCP/something. I'm sure this has some significance.
Is what I did a viable approach ?? And how do you allow a normal
user (not root) to redirect to the modem using '< /dev/tty00 >
/dev/tty00' ? When I tried this as a normal user I get a console message
the ser00 is busy, and my process dies!!
