how do I disable the generation of XOFFs when using tip over a
serial port to another device

I have connected one of the RS232 ports of my PC with FreeBSD (v6.3) on
it to a device that does not understand XON/XOFF flow control. I run the
tip program to connect to that device.
How do I configure tip and/or the serial port so that the FreeBSD PC
will NOT send XOFFs or XONs to the device?
When I run:
stty -a -f /dev/cuad0
where /dev/cuad0 is the device associated with the port, it outputs
(among other things):
iflags: ... ixon -ixoff ...
>From my reading of the stty man page, I would think that means the port
is already configured to not send XOFFs.
Is there something I need to do to /etc/remote to tell tip to not enable
