Is there any way to monitor what a modem is doing when it auto answers a
The modem answers an incoming call and hand shakes OK and goes on line,
but a few seconds afterwards drop the line.
I did have the S2 register set to 255 in order to overcome the +++ATH0
problem (yes, it is one of those badly behaved modems), but even setting
it back to 43 makes no difference.
All getty writes to the log is:
Oct 7 09:01:46 janus getty: exiting on HANGUP signal
which is highly un-informative.
I have noticed that this problem appears to have started since I upgraded
this particular box from a 2.0.x kernel to a 2.2.17 kernel, but I don't
know which end is causing the hangup, mine or theirs, hence my enquiry.
