To identify the serial port I guess (1) look at /etc/ttys.
If you can't work it out from there try hooking up a modem and sending
a cat to the various ttys ports and see when the lights flash..
Or, rather than use tip, try to compile minicom..
(Though I myself DO use tip on a 3000/300 but it's OSF... )
