There is a program called cu "Connect UNIX" it is in IRIX .. you need to install eoe.sw.uucp or something like that ... look for uucp in your IRIX sets as it is not installed by default... I have a FreeBSD laptop which I use cu to connect to various serial ports. I think the command syntax is something like ....


  cu -l /dev/ttys0 -s 384000


Extract from man page
