Re: Slip connection to Linux Box
I originally asked questions about:
(1) Setting up serial connections to a Linux box
(2) A weird problem with logging in as root from telnet/rlogin
Thanks to answers from a few people I've now got the connection working
properly, all except a problem when transferring large chunks of data
down the connection.
I have a feeling this is the infamous serial port bug, so I going to have
a look at hsmodem. Can anyone tell me the best options to configure
hsmodem for an STE running MiNT??
As regards the second problem, people suggested that it was my
/etc/ttytab that was at fault. I looked into this, and I couldn't figure
how I could change this to make the login work.
If I want to login in from a remote location, the connection will come
from ttya. I haven't got a "getty std.19200" running on ttya, as I'm
running slattach. My ttytab reads something like this for ttya:
ttya /usr/sbin/getty std.19200 dialup off secure
i.e. The tty is turned off, as it would conflict with the slattach-type
commands running at each end of the link.
How can I make a connection from ttya "secure" so that I can log on as root?
Thanks for the help...
