This BBx user was setup with a slave printer in a remote location. Since we have no way of knowing in advance what the tty number will be when she logs in we build a custom BBx config fle when she logs in.
The first thing we do is populate the custom config file and name it after the username she uses to login. Then we set up a terminal and slave printer aliases using the value of the unix tty command.
Then we start up BBx and the folks in Phoenix think I'm a whiz.
