First, this is only possible under NitrOS9.  I seem to recall twilight term
is not an os9 program, but I might be wrong.  So thats a potential issue.

Next, you must configure the terminal program to use the device "/N".  Some
things are hard coded to another device, these need to be hacked to work.

Once that is done, enter "ATZ<enter>" to reset the virtual modem, which
enables echo and other handy things.  ATD192.168.1.1 will "dial"   The baud rate and other serial port settings don't matter to
