Chapter 1

Managing Terminals, Modems and Serial Port Services (Tasks)

This chapter describes how to manage terminals and modems and how to use the Service Access Facility (SAF) to manage serial port services. Also included in this chapter is information about how to perform console administration by using the Service Management Facility (SMF).

Note - The SAF and SMF are two different tools in the Oracle Solaris OS. Starting with the Oracle Solaris 10, ttymon invocations on the system console are now managed by SMF. The SAF tool is still used to administer terminals, modems, and other network devices.

This is a list of the information that is in this chapter.

For step-by-step instructions on managing serial ports , see the following:

For reference information about the SAF, see Service Access Facility Administration (Reference).
