Hello,

I have set up a slackware system and compiled and installed mgetty 1.1.9 (is
this the newest release? if not where do I get an update?). I am trying to set
up the system for dialin access and have some old USR 28,800 sportster fax
modems I would like to set up.

So far I have set up one modem on ttyS0, and set the modem to the factory
settings.  when I dial in from another computer (windows terminal) mgetty will
answer the call, but I cannot get it to return a login prompt (just displays
gibberish).  This tells me that it is probably a comm problem between the modem
and linux.  I have looked at the mgetty docs, but can't find much info on USR
modems so I do not know how the modem needs to be configed - are the factory
settings OK?  and, how should mgetty be configed to communicate with the USR (I
have just the "default" install right now. The speed is set to 38400 and what
about flow control and error checking? If anyone is running this same
configuration can you please tell me how mgetty and your modem are configured?

Thanks,
-Bob

this is my /etc/inittab entry:

# Dialup lines
s0:345:respawn:/usr/local/sbin/mgetty -D -x8 /dev/ttyS0

 
 
 

1. HELP: DIP/MGETTY w/ USR Sportster 28.8k

        I know this is probably a common question, but does anyone have 'working' :)
 mgetty, DIP, and inittab entries to get Linux 1.1.59 working as a dial-in SLIP server with
 a USR Sportster 28.8k attached?  I'm using a Windows PC running Chameleon 4.5 as
 a client machine and, if they'll connect at all, its usually at 2400bps (!!).  I don't have a
 multiport card or anything, just connecting to COM1.  This is rather time-critical for me to
 get operating, so if anyone can shed some light on this ASAP I'd be grateful.

                                        Thanx,
                                                C. O'Malley
