/dev/cua? has been obsoleted. Long ago, it was used for dialout as you'd
experienced. Among other things it caused grief for file locking -
specifically, how does one make sure that using /dev/ttyS1 prevents another
process from using /dev/cua1?
For a long time (haven't read the current docs) PPP's documentation specified
/dev/cua? as the port to use, even though it didn't work that way - you had
to use /dev/ttyS?.
The UUCP specific issues I'm not going to be much help on. It's been many
moons since I've done UUCP setup - and then it was HDB (aka BNU).
PS If this isn't a FAQ, it should be. :)
