Re: Does agetty work with a modem
Can anyone help me get agetty working? I need to set up Cygwin to answer a
modem call with agetty. Here are a few questions I have. I would really
appreciate some help because I cannot find much information about agetty on
1. How do I set the modem to auto answer. Can I do this in a shell script
using the agetty -e option to execute a command? I tried "echo ATS0=1 >
/dev/ttys2" but it doesnt work. I am using COM3.
2. It looks like agetty immediately opens the com port and attempts to read
a login name from it. Does this mean that it expects the modem to be
connected with it executes. There doesnt seem to be any code in agetty to
wait for a modem to answer. Do I need to wait for the modem to connect
using the -e command option?
My inittab file has the following line
S3:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -8 -N -1 -h -t60 -e/bin/autoans.sh 9600 ttyS2
