BTW, I don't know how you could turn off hardware flow control in dip, but I
suspect you'd have to fiddle with the source to accomplish that.
I am having problems dialing out from dip. I need to set up a SLIP
connection. This used to work for me before I installed a brand new
Slackware and a new modem.
I can dial out OK from minicom after setting software flow control
instead of hardware flow control. Why can I not use hardware flow
control? I have to set software flow control under windows too.
I cannot find any option for dip which will set software flow control,
so I guess that is the reason why I cannot get any response from my
modem in the 'term'-mode of dip.
Do I need to use setserial or some other program to set some
parameters of my serial port? I would like to use hardware flow
control, but if it is not possible, I need to set it to software flow
I have a MultiTech MultiModem ZDX 28.800 connected to a DELL Optiplex
466/MVX, and I am running Slackware 3.0 (I had the same problems with
Slackware 2.3.0 - I guess they both include dip-337j).
Thanks for any help.
