Sounds like it. :-)

Right now I'm not allowing any logins through those lines. As someone
mentioned before, if they are enabled at boot, things didn't work that
well before. The problem seemed to be something about starting several
copies of a program simultaneously. I don't know if this still is a
problem, but since I'm using DECstations as X-terminals to the VAX, I
really don't need any more serial lines in than the console. SO I have
tried logging in on other ports yes, but I'm not currently doing that. I'm
just using the ports for printers and modems. :-)

Let me know what you want to know next. :-)
