In the bios is there a setting i can confirm the port status as a dce or
dte? Would this situation effect getty even if i didn't have a cable plugged
in, because i'm getting the msg whether i have the cable in or not.

shows this is an issue, but i didn't see an answer. It seemed to have
something to do with noisy lines, this is a direct comport to comport
connection with a nullmodem cable. I thought about changing the flow
option, but didn't see any option for it in /etc/ttys. Any ideas?
Do you have access to a breakout box or RS232 tester. Sometimes
signals are not what you'd expect.
I've also seen comports set up differently some acting as DTEs and
others ast DCEs - and connectiong one of each won't need a
