        I received a lot of mail on this one. Most suggesting ~. or ATH.
     These of course are fairly basic but worth suggesting (similar to
     asking whether or not the modem is connected). Others had more
     elaborate suggestions.
        The final solution was to trash the $500 Motorola Codex and plug in
     a $50 Hayes compatible. Now tip works like a champ. And the modem
     hangs up when you close the xterm window. Modems are like life; the
     simpler the better.
        Thank you to everyone who tried to help. This is still the best
     and fastest resource for UNIX help.
