I have some Term problems. I have a 14.4k modem. I am able to make a 38.4k
connection with the Decstations at work. If I set baudrate to 2400 in the

it did have lots of problems sending a gzipped file. I have a feeling that
the two problems are somehow related.
I believe everything is escaped correctly, I know
it is an 8 bit line, baudrate is not set too high. Any help would be
Do I have to put the modem in some strange mode before dialing in? What combo
of v42, MNP, handshaking, etc seem to work?
