So I assume you could do what we want by using the @ command and then the
tip command.  The result is that a user coming in on a telnet conenction can
talk directly to an async port?

Of course the @ command really give the user to much control - my code
will just automatically connect someone to a free async port.

Yes, a modem server or a connection to some async only host can be
very useful.
