Actually I don't want to adhere with such thing.
I think laptop with COM port will be extinct very soon due to marketing.
I don't want to find the solution again after says 5 years.
I believe that MANY people here are using FreeBSD on laptops without COM port.
But I don't know how they fix the problem of internal modem built with
the laptop.
The only solution I can think right now is staying in LAN and behind NAT.
