We just added a second outside line and modem for use as a slip or ppp
connection. The first setup has been working great for over a year so
I have a little experience setting up and trouble shooting a dial in
The second modem is a US Robotics Sportster 36.6 Fax/Modem. I set
it up exactly the same way as our other system and it WORKED fine
for about 2 days and then stoped working. For the like of me I cannot
figure out why. And suggestions would be helpful. I can connect
out with the system fine, it just does not handle incoming calls
anymore. It answers, connects, and then just spits back garbage
no matter what speed or parity settings I use. The annoying part is
it used to work, I could log in fine, run slip or ppp, no problems.
Now it works fine for outgoing calls, but incomming calls are screwy.
Below are my rc.serial and inittab entries.
kernel 1.99.6 (I am going to upgrade soon to 2.0 and gettyps)
rc.serial setserial /dev/cua3 uart 16550A port 0x2E8 irq 3
inittat: d1:45:respawn:/sbin/uugetty ttyS3 38400 vt100
Any help would be appreciated
