Why tip is saying "link down":
The port is confused about xon/xoff. Other programs won't be
able to use this port either. Add ":nt" to the /etc/remote
listing for the port.
Why "~." exits tip *and* rlogin
Because "~." is also the escape sequence for rlogin. Try "~~."
or "~~^D". Alternatively, launch rlogin with "rlogin -e# foo"
to change the escape character from "." to "#".
