We tried using a serial terminal under release 6, but haven't tried it under
7.x.  The x3.64 functions were hopelessly buggy.  At the time, Symbolics
software support recommended that if we must use the serial terminal, we
shouldn't use the :x3.64 keyword.  In straight glass terminal mode it worked
tolerably well for input and output but wasn't useful for editing.  We did
manage to hook a Hayes modem to it, and I was able to call in, upload and
download files, and evaluate forms.
