I looked at the SmartModem 300.  It looks like it completely detected 
the speed and parity internal to the unit.  If you have a manual or a 
link ot one to validate, I think that would suffice. If it did do that, 
then it would have reconfigured itself to match the terminal and thus 
all communication would be in the same format (8N1, 7E1, etc).

I did a quick check for an online manual, but my Google-fu is weak today.
