Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have installed the ps_getty package and have no problem dialing out and making a connection using minicom. However, when I dial in I get the baud rate, a connected message a "v42" and nothing else before it disconnects. I am using geetydefs and have eh following line in /etc/inittab:
# Run xdm in runlevel 5
# xdm is now a separate service
[root@linuxserver root]# cd /etc/default
[root@linuxserver default]# ls
fppath getty useradd uugetty.modem uugetty.ttyS0
[root@linuxserver default]# more uugetty.ttyS0
#uugetty configuration file for a Hayes compatible modem to allow
#incoming modem conenctions
#line to initialize
#timeout to disconnect if idle...
#modem initialization string
#this line sets the time to delay before sending the login banner
The gettydefs line is:
57600# B57600 CS8 CRTSCTS # B57600 SANE -ISTRIP HUPCL CRTSCTS #@S login: #38400
What should my "57600" line look like in the gettydefs file and what should be contained in my /etc/default/uugetty.ttyS0 file?
TIs weeks later and I still cannot get more than "CONNECT 26400 NoEC" when the modem answers. Yet - no login still. Is this a hosts problem. Does uugetty search for denied access or that the host exists?
