Thanks to all, for ALL the help :-)
My original problem was:

This is what worked for me:
Switch settings for the USR Sportster 9600:
1.) As superuser, I made the device cua0 for dial-out. I then moved ttyb to
ttyd0 for dial-in.
2.) I edited /etc/ttyb to include
ttyb "/usr/etc/getty std.9600 unknown off local secure
ttyd0 "/usr/etc/getty std.2400 dialup on remote
3.) Using eeprom, I set
4.) I turnerd off soft carrier on ttyd0. In /etc/rc I set
/usr/etc/ttysoftcar -n ttyd0 > /dev/null 2>&1
5.) I edited /etc/remote as shown in the System & Network Administration
book (so tip would work).
6.) I re-booted the system.
