SunOS tip has been able to do better'n 2400 for quite a while now.
I'm running Solaris 1.1, and it can do 38400. I haven't tried
tip on Sol2 yet, but my printer s running at 38400 on both Sol1 and Sol2.

I would suggest that everybody try to talk to the modem first by matching
the hardwire entry in /etc/remote to the required port/speed, etc. before
they try tip dialing.

For people prepared to hack a little, there is also tipx in comp.sources.misc,
volume 13. A common problem with tip is that the dialer is quite specific.
Most of the time the modem needs to be set in a special way.
