Hi, I'm attempting to setup a serial console on an old machine, but I
can't figure out where I'm going wrong. I've got the following in
tty00   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   unknown on secure rtscts
tty01   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   unknown on secure rtscts

The problem being that the gettys get stuck in 'ttyopn', and never seem
to come out of it. 

I'm fairly sure the hardware side of things is fine, scince the two
sides can communicate using 'cu -l /dev/dty0x'.

Any input would be apprechiated.
