I think you are trying to start cu on a _virtual_ terminal (ttyvN). In
my /etc/ttys the section with the virtual terminals is followed by these
# Serial terminals
# The 'dialup' keyword identifies dialin lines to login, fingerd etc.
ttyd0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off secure
ttyd1 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off secure
ttyd2 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off secure
ttyd3 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off secure
# Dumb console
dcons "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" vt100 off secure
I think you just need to turn the corresponding serial port "on". I am
not sure if you can create a login screen on your soon-to-be terminal
automatically upon startup of the FreeBSD box, however...
Hope this helps,
