cannot get login on dumb terminal
I have fedora 11 running and am trying to connect a laptop running windows xp as a dumb terminal. I have tried to use hyperterminal and an old terminal emulator anzio that I have. I cannot get a login. I can echo something from the linux box to ttyS0 and it will show up on the dumb terminal screen, but no login. This happens on both terminal emulators.
I am using a null modem cable.
I have goggled how to do this and have followed all the instructions that I have found.
My inittab entry looks like this:
s0:23:respawn:/sbin/agetty -L 9600 ttyS0 vt100
when I run ps -ef |grep agetty
this is what I get
ty06 1484 1411 0 16:23 tty1 00:00:00 grep agetty
from what I can tell this is my problem I should have a entry for the ttyS0 port.
Any help would be appreciated.
