Termcap problems on dial-in....

Termcap problems on dial-in....

Post by Mark A. Pitch » Sat, 14 Jan 1995 03:52:05

        I'm running linux 1.1.45 (originally InfoMagic 1.1.18) with
termcap version 1.1.

        Wrong attributes are being used on characters for users
dialing-in. For example, sometimes the screen gets inversed. Sometimes
characters that are supposed to be inversed aren't (and characters that
aren't, are.) Sometimes everything works (for a while.)

        It doesn't matter if the term is set for ANSI, VT100, or VT102.
These little glitches still happen. Character placement works fine --
even for curses-based games.

        When I dial-in to my own system from the console (using a VT-100
emulator), everything works fine. It's only remote users who are having
this problem -- and it's all users with all different types of software
(so it's not their fault.)

        Anyone know what's going on, and how this can be fixed?

1. Problems with dialing out when dial-ins are enabled

I'm having trouble getting dial-outs to work when dial-ins are
enabled.  I can dial out on /dev/cua1 when getty isn't running
on /dev/ttyS1, but when getty is running I get a message that
the port I'm trying to dial-out on (/dev/cua1) is in use.  I
read the FAQs and everything seems to be set up right.  What
am I doing wrong?
