|-a||Use autobauding (change port speed to modem CONNECT speed). There is no voice modem that needs this, the option is just documented for completeness.|
|-m expect send ...|
Set the chat sequence that is used to initialize the modem.
For an empty expect part, use empty double quotes ("").
Since the sequence contains spaces, you will have to enclose
all of it in single quotes (). Example:
vgetty -m "" ATH0 OK
|Set the number of rings after which vgetty will answer the phone|
|Set the serial port speed to use, e.g. "-s 38400". This is the speed of communication between the computer and modem in bits/sec (baud).|
|-x <log level>|
|Set the log verbosity level. Zero (0) means no logging, six (6) is really noisy. Use level six (6) when sending problem reports to the maintainer. The log file is /var/log/vgetty.ttyXX.|
vgetty sets the following environment variables when calling external programs:
CALLER_ID The callers telephone number. CALLED_ID The number the caller has dialed. Useful for ISDN with multiple incoming phone numbers on the same physical line. CONNECT The connect string as reported by the modem (e.g. "38400/V.32bis/V.42bis ... ", etc.). DEVICE The tty device being used (e.g. "ttyS0"). Useful for handling multiple devices ("messages on this line are for work, messages on the other line are personal").
vgetty is included in the mgetty+sendfax distribution. For the latest release, go to:

/etc/mgetty+sendfax/voice.conf Main configuration file for vgetty. Many options here override the equivalents found in /etc/mgetty+sendfax/mgetty.config /etc/nologin.ttyXX If this file exists, vgetty will not answer calls on device ttyXX. /var/log/vgetty.ttyXX Debug log file for vgetty. /var/spool/voice/messages/Index List of greeting messages to use. /var/spool/voice/.code Access code for remote playback of messages using the dtmf.sh script /var/spool/voice/.flag vgetty touches this file when a new message is received /var/spool/voice/.timestamp Used by the dtmf.sh script to record last time of message playback
If vgetty doesnt work they way you think it should, check the log file. By default, it is located in /var/log/vgetty.ttyXX (for the vgetty process handling device ttyXX, e.g. ttyS0).
vgetty supports most standard voice modems, but many modems are not fully compliant with relevant standards or contain firmware bugs. If you have problems, try upgrading your modem to the latest firmware revision. If you discover a bug with how vgetty reacts to your modem, please email the maintainer (firstname.lastname@example.org) describing your problem. Include relevant excerpts from the log file (set log level to six first), and details about your modem (including firmware revision) and operating system.
