I have setup a FreeBSD 2.1.5 box which has a modem for dialin access.
The modem is a Vfast Class 28.8
The com ports only have 8250 uarts.
I am using stty to set crtscts on the com ports.
In /etc/ttys I have set the getty to std.38400 for each com port. (No
changes have been made to /etc/gettytab) I have followed the section
in the handbook on setting up dialin access and am still having
My problem is this: I cannot connect unless I set the getty speed to
std.9600 in /etc/ttys, and force the modem to connect at 9600. This
will give me a login prompt. Any other speed (28.8, 14.4) yields
I suspect that the problem is occurring because the speed between the
computer and modem is different from the speed that the modems
Can you shed any light on this problem? Changing the entry in
/etc/ttys to std.19200 and connecting at 14.4 hasn't helped either. I
would really like to take advantage of the faster speeds instead of
being limited to 9600baud.
Thanking you in anticipation.
