Thanks, it seems to work but now, I have 2 problems:

1)- some displayed characters are corrupted on the ttyA1 (login display), it seems
that parity is wrong.
I have an entry in /etc/gettytab:
If I remove the ttyA1 entry in /dev/ttys and if I type:
stty 1200 parity -cstopb < /dev/ttyA1
ls > /dev/ttyA1
displayed characters on ttyA1 are not corrupted.

2)- I don't know why, but now cu doesn't work on dtyA1. I removed ttyA1 from 
/etc/ttys. If I type:
cu -e -s 1200 -l dtyA1 "dir"
I have the error message:
cu: open (/dev/dtyA1):Permission denied
cu: dtyA1: Line in use
