Define "no success".  What is the error message?  What does your dmesg
say about serial ports?

You must use dty* (dial-out) devices.

On my macppc I use the following to connect to my landisk using puc(4)

  $ cu -l /dev/dty11 -s 9600

Also see my bin/36060 for issues with devices and cu(1) permissions
vs. group "dialer".
