What is the safest way to let non-root users access
/dev/ttyd0? I notice that in FreeBSD, /dev/ttydx is owned by
root:wheel. In linux, the ttySx's are in a special group so the trick
there is to add users to that group and make sure the ttyS's are group
Here, I want the users to be able to use C-kermit to talk to a
remote device without them having to be root.
