	You have to enable a getty on the port before you can log in on it.

	Edit /etc/ttys, adding if needed a tty00 line. There are numerous
	examples in the file - it should be pretty easy to figure out what
	to add or change.  Then you need to tell 'init' about the change
	by doing a "kill -HUP 1".

	NOTE:  ports are NOT bidirectional - if you're going to enable logins
	on a line you won't be able to kermit _out_.  And vice versa, if you're
	going to kermit out you'll need to disable logins on that line.  Yes
	it'd be nice to have bidirectional ports - but someone keeps stealing
	my copious supply of free time ;-)
