Most recent I know is inside the ncurses distribution. For years
this was located on <URL:ftp://ftp.clark.net/pub/dickey/>, but it seems
moving. ftpsearch ist your friend.

Check /etc/inittab for a console entry. In the ttymon line might
be a "-T"-parameter; change it as you like.

Celeste Stokely at
<URL:http://www.stokely.com/unix.serial.port.resources/> has very fine
hints on consoles, ttys and modems on SUN's, plus a bag of nice
scripts for handling the saf-, ttymon-machinery...
