I had asked:

>I am trying to setup a UUCP connection where my Sun Sparc running
>4.1.1 dials into a PC running Xenix system V.
>The problem is that if I just have the username and the password
>in the Systems file, then the Xenix system waits forever even
>after I have sent the username followed by a ^M (control-M) which
>is the '\r' character sent by the Sun after every string.
>What is wierd is that I can do a 'tip' and log into the remote
>system manually (I have no idea how that system handles my keystrokes

The answer is:

Turn off parity on the Sun dialing out by putting 'P_ZERO' in the chat
script for the remote Xenix or System V machine.
