HOW TO:  Configure a Terminal for Login in SCO OpenServer 5.x

Configuring a Port for a Terminal

Use this procedure to configure a Digi serial device for a terminal. See your operating system documentation for more information on configuring a serial device for a terminal.

Procedure

  1. Connect a crossover serial cable between the port and terminal. 
  2. Edit the /etc/inittab file on the SCO OpenServer system. Change the lower case (non-blocking) device to the proper speed, data bits, stop bits and parity bit. Do this by editing the letter or number at the end of the line for the port (the default is m, which corresponds with 9600 8,1,N). See /etc/gettydefs for /etc/inittab letter and number definitions.
  3. Change the lower case (non-blocking) device entry from off to respawn.
  4. After saving inittab modifications, issue init q for the changes to take affect.
  5. You can disable a port for login by entering the following command from the UNIX root prompt:

    disable ttyx##

  6. Enable the port for login by entering this command at the root prompt:

    enable ttyx##

    where ttyx## is the name of the Digi device.
