Adding or removing pseudo-ttys
When you install TCP/IP, the Network Configuration Manager

to effect the changes.
Exit the Hardware/Kernel Manager.
Shut the system down and reboot it by using the
System Shutdown Manager
as described in the
SCO OpenServer Handbook.
Remember to select Reboot after shutdown when using the manager.
