I can't seem to get my internal modem to accept logins correctly. I've read
the FAQ and the man pages and tried all sorts of things but it still doesn't
It's a USR sportster 28.8 on com 2. I can "cu" to it fine, and the
configuration seems to be ok. I'm running getty on ttyd1 using std.57600 and
dialup on. 

I've managed to get the modem to answer but here's where things get wierd...
Even though I have the speed set to 57600 (sp#57600) it connects with a
CONNECT 2400 message, also, even though I have no parity set (np) I get
garbage unless I set my comm. program to even parity. 

Once the modem picks up I get the login: prompt. When I type in the username
I get the Password prompt, but then the program hangs! Hitting return,
escape etc has no effect. If I check ps on the system I see that the login
program is still running.

I read in the gettytab that there are different flags for the initial login
communication and the subsequent phases of the connection.. I tried using
stty to change the flags but it didn't seem to work... 

I _KNOW_ this is supposed to be easy, but for some reason I'm stuck... 
Can anyone give any pointers or tips that might help me out?

Thanks in advance,

Henry Stapp
