I'm a little new to the unix world (but I like it), so this is
probably a ridiculously simple question.
One of the first things I did when I got Linux (v.0.00pl15) installed
was to use a null modem to connect to another on-premise PC.
Following some instructions somewhere, I linked '/dev/cua0' and
'/dev/modem'. It worked great. I was a very cheery joe. Now, I've
just added a new modem on which I want to use 'seyon'. 'Seyon' seems
to want '/dev/modem' to be linked to my actual modem.
Problem (probably with a simple answer): how do I unlink '/dev/modem'
from '/dev/cua0' (currently serving the null modem) and then link it
to '/dev/cua1' (or is it '/dev/ttyS1') for the "non-null, i.e.,
One other consideration: I recently read some authoritative-sounding
explanation for not creating the '/dev/modem' to '/dev/cua1' link,
something to do with screwing up dialins. But it seems seyon wants
it. Shouldn't I just do what seyon wants? Or is there another,
better option, one which wouldn't foul the possibility of my getting
call-ins (something I'm probably going to want to do sometime lter)?
Thanks much for the help,
