Shouldn't this be 'local' when there is no modem? (I've tried both,
but saw no difference.)

Well, the way I set it up, one side just waited for the other to
connect, so the terminology seemed natural.

I'm not so sure, and yes, that could be my problem. The 486 has been
sitting in a closet for a rather long time, but I clearly remember
that windows 95 refused to run its serial port any faster than 57600
bps. I figured that _any_ hardware ought to be able to do 9600 bps, so
I'd try that first and then increase it as soon as I got things

I'll try changing the speed and swapping the lines in the config files
around a bit, and see if that helps.
