Capture Raw data from modem (ttyLT0)

I am attempting to capture the raw data from a fax that is received by ttyLT0 on my Redhat 8 machine. I am using the command

#> cat /dev/ttyLT0 >~/modemOutput

In theory this should work. However, catting (or tailing) the tty port causes it to become locked and therefore it will not answer or receive the fax while I am catting (or tailing) the file. Does anybody know either:

1. Where RedHat 8 happens to place the lock file for ttyLT0 so that I can just go and kill it.


B. A better way of capuring the raw data from an incoming fax transmission.

Any help would be appreciated on this one! Thanks!
