I run linux & raspberry os but this is where I would start
do you have a null modem cable available?? or modem on another pc??
can you launch a modem program on each machine and on the mystic machine,
type ATS0=1 (answer after 1 ring) then on the other ATO (if memory serves)
that will tell you the modems can communicate :-)
I am using a null-modem cable to communicate with an "OLD" 150mkz fujitsu
my getty line looks like this - but getty should also work
sudo agetty -i -L -h -t 60 ttyS0 9600 vt102 --host fujitsu
what this does, is -t timeout if no connection in 60 seconds --host is fake
host name for things like who etc. -l no issue (no system messages at
startup) -L local-line mode always - turns off carrier detect (in my case)
this gives me a login prompt on the laptop and from there I telnet out.
