term 1.08 && v.42bis => !work

Post by Mark R. Linds » Thu, 10 Feb 1994 05:41:12

I've use term happily for several months with a clean 2400 bps connection
(no escapes, id est), and recently discovered that the modems I connect to
can support v.42bis, which should at least slightly improve my throughput.
I'm using v.42bis now without term.

I tried using term, but I've failed to make it work. I know term 1.08
defaults to 2400 bps, and I'd set the interface speed to 19.2k on my modem,
so I started term on the remote end with no flags and then jumped back and
used 'term -s 19200 >/dev/modem </dev/modem'. trsh just gave me noise, and
when I'd try to reconnect and 000000-out of the remote end, it'd be locked up.
When I try to dial back into that modem, I get a long, never-ending string of

I've tried several different interface speeds, including 9600 and 4800,
and started term at those speeds on the remote end each time. All for nought.
All it seems to do is lock up a modem (our terminal server is stupid). The
odd thing is that using the connection without term is very clean and
workable. Noticeably faster than with v.42bis.

Is there some way to change the default interface speed in linux for the modem
device? I think this must have ought to do with it, as you can copy things
to /dev/modem and they always seemed to go out fine at 2400 bps, but I know
that has to be set somewhere. Where? How do I change it? And why does term
seem to lock up on the remote end with the 0's?

Thanks. Reply here or via email.

1. 2>&1 |tee && 2>&1 >out

Hi Shell Gurus:

 I am all confused here. Consider the following two commands:

 $ cmd 2>&1 | tee logfile

 $ cmd 2>&1 > logfile

 In the first case both stderr and stdout go to the logfile but not in the
second case. Can someone explain me the reason. This is ksh 93. Is the
shell smart to look ahead of 2>&1 construct to see if the output is
actually going to a pipe??
