RE: [SLUG] CONFIGURING SLACKWARE TO RECEIVE (RAS)


Hi Katrina,

Hmm... I'd use pppd and a chat script to establish the connection, then
telnet or ssh to the box to get the login... always works a charm for me. If
you want the pppd command line and/or the chat script, please ask.

Does anyone have an opinion on which method (mgetty vs pppd) is better and
why?

Cheers,
Marty

Yes I admit it we are Micro$oft clones from the Bill Gates cult.

OK.. I have spoken to Katrina and she requires an actual login prompt. She
doesn't know if she has mgetty installed and I told her to login as root and
just type mgetty and see if there is any errors like "No such file or
Directory" or if it errors with a parameter message required and so on.

She was also told to use uugetty. I personally haven't used it and haven't
got it installed to try it.

Anyone care to advise?

They are from the Micr$oft world.

No - do not set the modem to auto answer.

mgetty should send an explicit request to answer to the modem when it
receives the RING signal.
