RTS/CTS handshake confusion

In the datasheet for the i.MX6 it states that the CTS is always output and RTS input regardless of DCE/DTE mode selected. Then how can it work in DTE mode then, when the RTS would be a signal going out to the connected device/modem and CTS should be a response from the connected device/modem..?


In the datasheet of the i.MX53 (assuming the UART function block would be similar) there's a table in chapter 76.1.3 that states opposite (and what I would assume correct) direction for these signals, changing direction according to DTE/DCE mode. But then later in chapter it states for instance that CTS is always _output_... as in the i.MX6 documentation.


Ok, I'm confused, or missing something obvious in the documentation in what should be pretty basic...
