Setting Parity in the /etc/uucp/Dialers File

In some situations, you have to reset the parity because the system that you are calling checks port parity and drops the line if it is wrong. The expect-send couplet P_ZERO sets parity to zero:

foo =,-, "" P_ZERO "" \dA\pTE1V1X1Q0S2=255S12=255\r\c OK\r\EATDT\T\r\c CONNECT 

The following are parity couplets that can follow the expect-send couplet:


Sets the parity to even, which is the default

"" P_ODD

Sets the parity to odd

"" P_ONE

Sets the parity to one

This pseudo-send string can also be used in entries in the Systems file.
