I have an issue with the /dev/cua/a port where the modem is installed.
If I run tip on that port, I can talk to the modem, but there's some
kind of buffering effect (one-keystroke delay), where I need to press a
key in order for previously typed character to appear. I suspected
wrong stty options, so I tried to change them as root. Well, turns out
that stty doesn't reflect any changes I'm trying to make! If I try to
run stty < /dev/cua/a -a, I get a list of current settings. Then I do
(for example) stty < /dev/cua/a crtscts, and get no errors. But when I
list the settings again, nothing has changed! The stty man page says
that the command acts only on stdin device - but how do I control
non-stdin devices? I'm having this issue both in Solaris and FreeBSD.
I'm sure it's something simple, I wonder what I'm missing. BTW, what's
the stty parameter that removes this buffering effect I'm experiencing?
By the way, those who now about my printer troubles, I'm still trying to
find a solution...
Thanks very much.
