Hi Dave,

I'm pretty sure that when I was corresponding with Ken about the -loop
option that he told me that the software does not use any of the RTS/CTS
flow control so hooking those signal up and making the UART look at them
would only stop traffic if there was a hardware problem like one computer
not being on or something.
