Does anybody have experience with this I have kermit for dos, and did
the procedure outlined in the Serial howto but.... I still get
respawning too fast messages and I locked up my modem.I know enough to
change the ttySx device but any pointers to make this easier?

/etc/gettydefs:
  # virtual console (or 3-wired terminal at 9600):

  # Terminal with RTS/CTS handshaking:
  TERM# B38400 SANE CLOCAL CRSTCTS -ISTRIP # B38400 SANE CLOCAL CRSTCTS \

/etc/inittab:
  S2:234:respawn:/sbin/getty ttyS2 VC vt100
  S3:234:respawn:/sbin/getty ttyS3 VC vt100

The VC setting works great (TX, RX and Gnd only) but for anything faster
than 9600 you need to use RTSCTS handshaking.. by the time the machine sees
XOFF, a dozen bytes have already hit the floor!

1. 8088 XT SLIP,PPP,PLIP to Linux machine possibly??

Hi fellow helpers;

I like to get some use out of my 8088 XT, my hope is to network it to a
Linux machine.  I paid $1500 for it back in the old....old days.
Via by Slip, PLIP, or PPP, ethernet is out the question. I do not want
to pump more money into the XT anymore.

Is this possible  ?
(XT's do not have a windows enviroment)

if yes,   1  what sofware do i need for the XT with 640K RAM ?

          2  how difficult is it ?

          3  Would you point me in the right direction.

I have read part of the Linux network guide, found no help on this subjuct.

if not, please state it is not possible. Then i may rest in peace and use
the XT for some other purpose.

Some guy has posted that it was possible, and have sent mail to them.  So
far, no reponse.   I believe them, for VT220 dummy terminals are
able to connect via serial to unix or VAX machines.

thanks for any help.
