HELP needed with connecting UPS to serial port w/o "getty"

Post by nils » Sun, 12 Mar 1995 02:49:48



Has anyone ever hooked up a tripp-lite ups to a solaris machine using the
power alert plus software?  

The ups instructions for a solaris installation blow, and i cant really figure
out the way solaris is handling it's serial ports.  

The instructions say that i need to configure the port for 2400, but without
a getty running.  Now, i think that in solaris, a ttymon is a getty.  But
knowing this still doesnt get me much closer to setting the thing up.  

So how do i configure ttya for straight serial communications without a
getty/ttymon getting in the way?

thanx,

please reply via mail if possible.
