1. Permission Denied message when accessing /dev/cua3 in PPPD

I continually get a "Permission Denied " message when attempting to dial up
my ISP using chat. I have known good scripts that I got from a buddy who
uses the same ISP as I do, but I get this message when the script calls up
the serial port /dev/cua3. Has anyone out there encountered this? This
occurs even when I login as ROOT.I have made sure that the permissions on
my scripts are set to executable and have even set the permissions on
/dev/cua3 wide open. I await your outpouring of wisdom.........
