Chnaging /dev/console from Sun Monitor to Wyse term

Chnaging /dev/console from Sun Monitor to Wyse term

Post by Bruce Campbel » Wed, 22 Jul 1998 04:00:00

I have an Utra 1 with a frame buffer installed running Sol 2.5.1. It's
just been added to a terminal switch. The only out put I get to the
termnial is garbage. Where do I set my console settings?

1. Sun to Linux via term, NOGO: term < /dev/ttyb > /dev/ttyb,

Hi, well, what I am trying to do is have a Sun at work dial my Linux box
at home, Sun
logs onto Linux starts 'term' up, escapes and then runs 'term' on Sun.
Then all will
be good with the world since I, sitting at my Linux box, can now trsh,
tupload, etc.
all around the world...

My system works fine when I originate the call from Linux, start term on Sun,
escape to Linux and do 'term < /dev/modem > /dev/modem'. Trouble is I'm
doing it the other way round now, and when on the Sun I escape and do
'term < /dev/ttyb > /dev/ttyb', I get something like:   /dev/ttyb: Device Busy.

Well, it makes sense that the Sun should be 'protecting' that device that is
in use. Linux is kind of free and easy and let's me do term < /dev/modem
even though the device is in use (as though Linux thinks I actually know what I
am doing :-).  Are there any workarounds to this? the permission of the modem
serial line on Sun are:

crw-rw-rw-  1 root      12,   0 Sep 16 22:45 /dev/ttyb

And it stays this way while in use.
(I barely know enough about file permissions and devices under Linux, please
forgive me that I know even less about SunOS) On the Sun I've tried using both
kermit and tip, doesn't matter, both give Device Busy errors. term -v/dev/ttyb
also fails.

Is there another way to go about things? I would like to still run term
< /dev/modem > /dev/modem
on Linux side, but how do I run term on the Sun side? I have no shell
running on Sun
connected via modem to Linux. Arrrg this is driving me batty!! Is there
a way I can have
the Sun dial to Linux _and_ provide getty to me (presumably I sit in a
comm package
and do ATA when Sun calls, then log into it).

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I've been banging my head against
the wall
on this for days!
