setting up a modem-HELP!

Running SCO V v3.2 on a pc based, with USR 56k modem.
Setup is on a LAN with several workstations.

How do I go about setting up the modem?
What do I enable or disable?

I've tried doing a "enable tty1A", but when I go to dial
in from a remote, off-site, it connects, then shortly
disconnects?

Remote settings are from a Win95 box, using Dial-Up, with
I believe are the proper DNS and remote IP settings, then
using a telnet session. I've also tried using Terminal (win3.1 app).

I believe that what ever program I'm using, the settings
are correct, but I must be doing something wrong in UNIX,
or there are additional settings that must be accomplished.

please, can someone give me some real help?

don't know about sco, but on HPUX putting a modem on a serail port (MUX), we also had to change to 'getty' process that is running to detect a login on that port. So try putting another start process in the /etc/inittab file for that port. Sorry, can't remember which programs it were. try looking in some man pages

Hope it also helps for SCO.

Hi !

You need to do so :
1 - Edit /etc/inittab. Make speed (last car. of line)   "m" (9600) for tty1a and "m" or "n" (19200 b) for tty1A. NOTE if you modify speed you must also modify the /etc/conf/init.d/sio file to keep modfications if you make a new kernel in future.

2 - Disable tty1a and Enable tty1A (Note : tty1a is for control modem  and tty1A for connexion)

3 - You must have 3 Leds light on the USR (AA TR CS,  AA id automatic Answer, TR terminal Ready and CS Cariadge Sense)

4 - If TR is OFF verify the cable between modem and computer and kill the process getty and login on tty1a to reinitialize the connexion (or eventually reboot)

5 - if AA is off you need to reconfigure the modem (on a windows Pc or by kermit or uucp on UNIX SCO). On a windows PC (more easy), connect the modem on com1, run Terminal or HyperTerminal, name the session TEST (NOT COM1 it doesn't work). Type the following :
ATV1   the modem answer OK (codes in alphanumeric)
AT&F1  ok (config Hard)
ATS0=2  ok (Autoresponse in 2 secondes)
AT&W0  ok (Save in reg 0)
ATY0 ok (Reg 0 is default)

Reconnect the modem on the unix.

bye
