please help with uugetty

Hi! I have extern U.S.Sportster 33.6 modem on Com 2  (ttyS1)
I want to dial in my machine, for this I use uugetty

My /etc/inittab is:
............................
# Serial lines
s1:12345:respawn:/sbin/uugetty 57600 ttyS1 vt100
............................

My /etc/default/uugetty.ttyS1 is:
CLEAR = NO
HANGUP=YES
#DEBUG=777
DEBUG=010
INIT="" ATS0=1\r OK
ALTLOCK=cua1
ALTLINE=cua1
#WAITFOR=RING
#CONNECT="" ATs0=1\r CONNECT \s\A
TIMEOUT=60

My /etc/gettydefs is:
................................
#  Modem that autobauds to different speeds, terminal locked at 9600, etc:
#       - SANE includes CS8 ISTRIP HUPCL
#       - DON'T USE SANE or ECHO for initial config!!!!!
#
57600# B57600 CS8 # B57600 SANE -ISTRIP HUPCL #@S @L @B login: #38400
................................

But after init q I see:
INIT: Id "s1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

What's that mean and why?

Thanks
Oleg

First, you can't set the speed > 38.4K using the method above.  It's not supported by the ioctl() interface.  In all of the above, use 38400 as the rate.  Then, in your rc.local, put a line like:

setserial /dev/ttyS1 spd_hi &

This tells the serial port to run at 56K even though you are telling it "normally" to run at 38.4K.  

I also think that the rest of your problem is using uugetty.  agetty or mgetty are much more robust and I'd recommend you switch over to one of them.  Here are my setup files for agetty for a dialin line:

/etc/inittab:
c1:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux

/etc/default/uugetty.ttyS1:
CLEAR = NO
HANGUP=YES
#DEBUG=777
DEBUG=010
INIT="" ATM0S0=2&H1&R2&N0&M5&K3\r OK
########ALTLOCK=cua1
#ALTLOCK=modem
ALTLINE=cua1
#WAITFOR=RING
#CONNECT="" ATs0=1\r CONNECT \s\A
TIMEOUT=60

/etc/gettydefs:

38400# B38400 CS8 CRTSCTS # B38400 SANE -ISTRIP CRTSCTS #@S login: #38400
