I have successfully installed linux 1.2.8 and have dial-in working fine
up to speeds of 9600.
I have 5 28.8 modems (4 Boca and 1 USR) that are hooked into a cyclades
16 port io board.
After modifying the inittab file for the settings above 9600 (I set the
line speed to 38400) and checking gettydefs for the correct settings, I
used the setserial command to set the ports to spd_vhi and made the
appropriate changes in the boot files.
I have also used init to re-initalize the ports and all seems to be fine
until I try to connect at speeds above 9600. At 14.4, the machine either
hangs up or prints garbage on the screen and then hangs up. At 19.2 it
hangs up or allows me to get access fine. At 28.8, nothing except a
hangup. If I do get a connection (very rarely), when I download a file
there are considerable errors (crc etc).
Using my slip accounts that I have configured, speeds above 9600 are not
a problem and all appears to be functioning fine. I am using diplogin
for slip access.
Is there anyone out ther that can lend a poor netware administrator a
hand in this wonderful world of Linux???
PS. I have checked the faq and the serial-howto, but I can't find where
I'm gone wrong.
Thanks for reading.
