I'm trying to configure dialup on my system. I've read all available docs on
that subject, but I'm completely stuck. When I'm dialing in my system, I'm
getting garbage instead of login prompt. Here is an information about my
1) FreeBSD release 2.2.5 installed on HP Vectra VE 4/100.
2) Two Courier V.Everything modems on both ends.
3) I'm dialing through local office phone station, so my problems cannot
appears because of poor connection quality.
4) I have the following string in the /etc/ttys file:

ttyd0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.57600" dialup on

5) I've not changed anything in gettytab file.
6) I've not changed anything in rc.serial file.
7) When system is running, I have the following "ps -x | grep ttyd0" output:

2731 ?? I 0:00.27 /usr/libexec/getty std.57600 ttyd0

8) I've sent the following string to the modem on FreeBSD:

AT &F1 E0 Q1 S0=1 &W

While modem's DIP switches are set to "Normal Carrier Detect" and "DTR

So when I'm dialing from Windows'95 HyperTerminal to FreeBSD I'm getting
garbage instead of login prompt. I'm pressing Enter, but I'm getting more
garbage. During that process I have the following "ps -x | grep ttyd0"

2731 d0 Ss+ 0:00.24 /usr/libexec/getty std.57600 ttyd0

When I'm running "tip cuaa0" and dialing to FreeBSD, all typed letters are
passing through without any garbage. This is most confusing part of my
problem. Looks like there are some problems with getty ?

I've already spent two days on fixing this problem, but there are no results
at all :(
Please help me !

Kind regards

P.S. Please, reply to AND (I'm not sure
that outlook correctly fills these fields as well as I'm not sure that is available).

P.P.S. Sorry for my awful English ;(
