inittab setup for mgetty . . .
Posted on 1998-08-12
We currently have a modem setup on our system so that we can make a ppp
connection to other systems. This setup is sometimes unreliable and we suspect
that it is because that connection is being serviced by getty, instead of mgetty. In
setting up for mgetty I think I've made the appropriate entries in gettydefs. Now I'm
not sure how to make the appropriate entries in /etc/inittab, so that mgetty knows
to look in gettydefs. Some of the principle issues I'm concerned with are:
a.) Making sure that the port can continue to be used the way that it has been, both
for ppp and direct login.
b.) Solving our problems with not being able to use the port again, when the line drops
Question: What is the appropriate string for setting up inittab, for mgetty, so that it can
do auto-baud rate detection?
