i'm using pppd for leased line connection on 486 ISA machine. options
include "local" it's working well.
but why when i disconnect cable from port (com1 /dev/tty00) it says
"serial line is looped back"

Instead of asking why a piece of software is using "1970s technology,"
start asking why software is ignoring 30 years of accumulated wisdom.
