Adding a Modem

Now we're ready to add a modem to the system. This will use the same port monitor that we used for port “A” (ttymon), only it will be configured slightly different to suit our modem.

To configure this we'll follow similar steps to the earlier configuration for port “A,” although we don't need to update the _sactab file as we already have a valid ttymon configured and running. We simply need to add a secondary service and let the existing ttymon manage both of them.
