Modem Setup

I have a USR Sportster 33.6 internel faxmodem- mod-840.
The modem works fine on dial out, but I can not get a Log-in prompt from a remote system.
It's configured for cua1, and ttyS1, and using the latest version of getty_ps. Even with the WAITFOR=RING
in the uugetty.ttyS1 file , it wont pick up the line with
CONNECT=" " ATA\r CONNECT\s\A ?
When I manually issue the &s0=1 command, it answers the
line, but will not supply a login prompt- Using win NT dun
to call into.
Does anyone have a workable INIT= and CONNECT =
line I can try?
Thanks!

While I couldn't give you an exact answer string for getty_ps, what I _can_ tell you is that getty_ps is pretty dicey to get going properly for dial-in setups.  I'd recommend you have a look at mgetty - which is a modem-dedicated getty.  Out of the box, it compiles easily, is terribly simple to setup init strings and should answer all your problems with sending login prompts etc.  I had similar problems with getty_ps trying to get it to answer properly and ended up giving it the flick.  Mgetty can be obtained from: http://www.leo.org/~doering/mgetty/
