$sudo stty -a < /dev/ttyS2
bash: /dev/ttyS2: Permission denied

$sudo stty -a -F /dev/ttyS2
speed 38400 baud; rows 25; columns 80; line = 0;

I get the same in rxvt, but not in xterm.  I see your point.  I
originally understood that you meant -F is not working at all, not that
it works erroneously.

My the permissions for /dev/ups -> /dev/ttyS2 are:
crw-rw----   1 root     root       4,  66 Jun  4 13:54 /dev/ttyS2

How do I get the < option to work?
