I still am looking for some help on this. It is working
intermitently. Configuration is a xyplex terminal server connected to
1 Vax and 3 suns. Use is for dial-in only.
Some times I get a good connection.
Sometimes i get a bad connection. In this case , in responce to my
^M^M i get a reply of UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU. Strings
of U's show up every 45 sec or so, and then the modem hangs up.
Some times I get a hybird connection. This should give some one
a clue... It looks like this:
And the server replies
Please log out of the terminal server when done.
Enter username> astHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUj
It ignores any thing I type after the initall ^M^M, and from here on
acts like the "bad" connection discribed above.
It looks to me like, although I partially have the incoming (modem to
terminal server) connection that one of the suns is still trying to
control the outgoing (sun-ethernet-server->modem) connection...
proablaby at a different baud rate. I tryied fixing the baud rate
but seems to break things perminently... so I am back to autobaud.
Need some help here guys.... why would the sun be autonimously trying
to connect to the server?????
