Like cu, tip is used to connect to a device over your serial port. Unlike cu, tip uses a config file that stores all the options (speed, stop bit, hardware flow control, etc) so that you only have to run

# tip com1

to start it up.

See Connecting_to_a_terminal_console for a primer on how to connect to a computer. See also Headless_server and cu

(stub article...needs more work and example config file)
