if the baudrates on my tty's is affecting my speed at all on telnet
I currently have changed them from 38400 to 234000 and things seem to be

has a t1 running at 100 mbps?  Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Thanks in advance for any replies,

I briefly considered Minicom, but I don't know of any way to close the log
and terminate Minicom with cron.

Agetty looks like it could to the trick, but I'm not familiar enough with
bash to put the pieces together. For instance, how can I log the whole
