i am trying to setup a dial-in terminal service between 2 machines with
serial modems attached.
In the FreeBSD Handbook the instructions for a dial-out service use the tip
and cu commands.
I have been using minicom to connect to varius serial terminals such as
cisco routers, so i am used to it.
Is it better to use tip or minicom for dial-out purposes?

Is there a good instuction page for setting minicom up for dialing out?
