I would like to connect two linux boxes together via a null-modem
cable. I'm trying to run agetty on one machine (helium) and minicom
on the other (dialup). The problem is that I can login to helium from
dialup when helium has been booted, but after I exit minicom and go
back into it I don't get any response from helium. In /etc/inittab
I'm using /sbin/agetty -L ttyS3 38400. The -L is to ignore the
carrier detect status.
I've also tried using kermit on dialup to access helium after minicom
has been exited and the same thing happens.
I'm not sure whether the problem is with agetty on helium or
minicom/kermit on dialup. Would be grateful for any help.
