mgetty

Description
Mgetty is a versatile program to handle all aspects of a modem under Unix.

The program 'mgetty' allows you to use a modem for handling external logins, receiving faxes and using the modem as a answering machine without interfering with outgoing calls.

This package includes basic modem data capabilities. Install mgetty-fax to get the additional functionality for fax. Install mgetty-voice to get the functionality to operate voice modems.

Mgetty is also configurable to select programs other than login for special connections (eg: uucico, fido or other programs) depending on the login userid. It also supports caller-id if the modem and phone line supply it, and can deny connections based on originating telephone number.
