Of course it made sense. The current situation doesn't.
Unless we're talking about a server configuration where you might want things pretty much locked tight as default.
Thanks Tim for proving my memory isn't that bad... I'd have remembered if I had to fiddle with permissions to get access to the serial port.
Anyway... moving on.... I'm trying to find what else I need to do to have *any* program talk to my dial-up modem. My plan is to set up a dial-in server, but first I need to know if the POTS RJ11 port of my FTTH ONT supports data calls, as I suspect it does, and to do that I need to try dialing some dial-up ISP....
So far the modem is laughing at me. "see?, Linux guys and their permissions!" it said.
