I am trying to configure my modem to provide remote administrative capabilities on a machine running AIX, which is basically Unix. As of now, when I dial the number, I hear the modem respond like it is trying to connect, but never does. I know the modem has worked at some point in time before I came to this company, and I got it to work myself once, but as soon as someone else dialed into the modem, it stopped again. I have read some things but only have a working knowledge of the *NIX enviroment. Here is an excerpt from my /etc/inittab file.

cons:0123456789:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/console
tty0:2:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/tty0
tty1:2:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/tty1
tty2:2:off:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/tty2

I have tried using the penable command and also init q. My modem settings are exactly the same as they were when I had this working a few days ago. The fact that it was working then wasn't makes me thing there is some software issue. Assume that everything is physically setup right. In need of a quick answer, thanks.

Do you know for sure what tty number the modem is on?  If it's attached to tty2, it won't accept dialin (tty2 looks like it's set up for dial out as per http://www.faqs.org/faqs/aix-faq/part3/section-1.html )

You could test it by just running `/usr/sbin/getty /dev/tty2` from the command line

Chapter 12 of The IBM study guide (available at http://alge.anart.no/projects/free_books/aix/sg245139-aix-v43-system-support.pdf ) covers setting up dial-in access, of you want to recheck your setup
