I've been trying without success to talk to the serial ports on my 
SE/30...well, actually, to enable logins via them, but any kind of 
communication would be great to start.  I connected a 2400 bps modem up 
to it, to see what would happen, and all that happened was that the 
lights on the modem flashed incessantly for about five minutes, then the 
system complained "invalid login" from that port, and the lights stopped 
flashing. I have no way of finding out what happened there, because when 
I tried connecting a computer to the port and setting it to the same 
settings (2400 bps, N81 and XON-XOFF flow control) I didn't receive 
anything.  Should I be able to address the serial ports or not?
