HOW TO: Enable Login (getty) on a Serial Port in Red Hat WS/EL 6

1. Add file(s) such as /etc/init/ttyxyz.conf with content like:

# ttyxyz - agetty

start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL=[2345]
stop on runlevel [S016]


instance ttyxyz
pre-start exec /sbin/securetty ttyxyz
exec /sbin/agetty -L 38400 ttyxyz vt100

2. Run "initctl start ttyxyz" to activate the change.

**Note:  Please replace ttyxyz with the actual tty device name for the Digi port.
