    Serial line or telephone line.

    It is which terminal the user is connected using. Eg, under Linux the
    COM1 port would be described as ttyS0.

    If you don't connect using a serial line, you may find that your system
    pretends internally that you do, using something called a pseudo-
    terminal. See "man pty"
