No login using UUGETTY with external modem

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:

sbin/uugetty -d /etc/default/uugetty.ttyS0 ttyS0 57600 vt100.

The default/uugetty.ttyS0 file is as follows:

# Run xdm in runlevel 5
# xdm is now a separate service
x:5:respawn:/etc/X11/prefdm -nodaemon
[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?

Thank you in advance. You folks have been great!

This is just a crapshoot, but maybe you need to tweak /etc/login.access to allow this type of remote login.

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?

Suggestions gladly welcomed.
