How do you force a remote modem to drop the carrier once the user logs-out from a remote session on my server (SCO openServer 5)? and in the same time make sure that all processed associated with the task the user was in terminate?

set the modem for DSR follows carrier.  it is just a modem thing, not a unix thing :)
Commented:
Set the modem to follow the line carrier by executing the command:
      AT&C1

whilst connected to the modem.  On a SCO box, you should be able to do this with 'cu -lttya direct'.

Then type:

      ~.

to exit from the modem.

This means that the modem will follow the carrier line, so if the kline drops then so will the modem, and all processes attached to the tty (execept those that were executed with 'nohup') will also terminate.

The only side-effect of this (AFAIK) is that if you get noise on the line that lasts longer than the number of tenths of a second secified in register 25 (S25) then the modem will hang up.

You can set the value of register S25 by typing:

      ATS25=200

and this will tell it to wait 200ms after a change in carrier before assuming that the line has hung up.
