One thing to remember is that RS232 (IIRC really V.38) line driver
chips are typically inverting.

So the modem signals on a TTL level output will have the
opposite polarity to that required on the actual connector.

Normally a UART will have an 'active high' register bit for
a modem signal that drives and 'active low' pin so you get
the correct polarity with an inverting line driver.
