Dial-up server would require me to use PPP and TCP/IP. I cannot control the ip
address of the machines I am calling, so I run the risk of routing problems if
I connect from a Linux machine to more than one remote windows/cygwin machine
at a time. I need to also call Windows 95 machines and upgrading is not an
option. These will all have the same ip address becuase of a limitation in the
Win95 dial up networking. I think I could end up having routing issues using
TCP/IP to communicate with the remote machines.
All I need to do is dial into the windows/cygwin machine, start a telnet
session and execute a a shell script. It calls sz to send a file via zmodem.
What are the limitations of Cygwin as far as serial i/o. Could mgetty work on
Cygwin? Apparently agetty will support modems, but it doesnt look like it will
answer the call. I think it relies on the modem answering. I would rather
have the functionality of mgetty to avoid answers if mgetty is not running.
