Hi all. This might be a newbie question and the answer is probably simple. I
need to setup a serial connection to remote control a pc using a serial

# here is my /etc/ttys file
console "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         vt100   on secure
ttyE0   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         vt220   off secure
ttyE1   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         vt220   on secure
ttyE2   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         vt220   on secure
ttyE3   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         vt220   on secure
tty00   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   vt100   on secure

# I have this line in /etc/gettytab

I use a terminal client with the following settings
return : CR
baud : 9600
parity : N
word : 8
StopBits : 1
Xon/Xoff : is on
RTS/CTS : is on

I only get a blinking cursor, and no login prompt is appearing in the
client. Anybody has some suggestions to make my connection work ?
