Ring Pateren based Dial in Server
Ring pattern based Dial in Server
I want to add dial in to my home Linux server, I only have one phone
line and an answering machine that picks up on the 4th ring. Can I set
my Debian laptop to dial up in a pattern lets "say ring, hungup ring
ring hangup, ring ring ring" then have my server say eureka thats for me
then answer be for the answering machine?
I have built dial in servers for office environments in the past with a
with pppd and adding lines like
"S2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mgetty ttyS2 -D /dev/ttyS2" to my inittab, But I
have not found any solutions to adapt this setup for my home use.
The server is running woody stable and the 2.4.19 kernel the laptop is
running sarge with kernel 2.5.69
