Modems enable you to communicate over phone lines with remote systems.
Any external 100% AT-compatible modem should work
provided it is connected to a serial port that is capable
of supporting modem control protocols. All SCO OpenServer-supported serial
devices can provide modem control.
Some third-party multiport smart serial cards cannot be used as they
do not support modem control.
The UUCP package must be installed to support
modem connections, whether you are using cu,
PPP, or SLIP.
Use the Software Manager or
to install this package if necessary.
To set up a modem on your system, follow these steps:
Install the modem on your computer.
Configure the modem.
Set hardware flow control.
Configure connections to remote systems.
Test the modem.
