As I understand, most versions of JNOS 1.10 require that CTS be high for the
port to operate. You can either connect the RTS and CTS through to the
whatever is connected to the port, or just loop RTS to CTS in the RS-232
plug connected to the serial port card.
This was a recent problem with a friend's system here, too.
