Digiboard Port Server changes tty device permissions   by Anthony Lawrence
- Dumb terminals haven't quite disappeared from the earth yet. I still have customers using these, though today they are almost always connected over TCP/IP using something like Digiboard Portservers. Earlier this week, one of those customers called with a problem of changing perms on his /dev/tty* devices. He needs them set with write permission (666), but some were seemingly randomly resetting to 600.
