I bought a mac localtalk to rs232 cable to connect the modem to the LAN
port - it works fine under ConNect under TOS - I can dial in to BBS's
fine with it, so it does work as a normal serial port. :/ I managed to
get NetBSD to raise TR on it once, but apart from that no go. :(

Working in a usable way! *grin*
If I can't use it to dial out its no good to me. :( This is a shame cos
often we have two computers here both dialing in to isp's at the same
time and I thought I could half the phone bill this way by using one
computer (pentium PC) as a terminal to mine.
