vboxgetty.conf - config file for vboxgetty


The file /etc/isdn/vboxgetty.conf is used to configure vboxgetty. Please read the man page vboxgetty(8) for a description of how vboxgetty works.

Everything after "#" is ignored, as are empty lines. All arguments must be separated by whitespace (spaces, tabs). Arguments may not contain whitespace.

All settings before the first port command are global settings, after a port command they only affect the current port.

port <string>
ISDN device to configure.
modeminit <string>
Command to initialize the modem. You should set the MSN/EAZ on which vboxgetty should listen for incoming calls. Default is "ATZ".
user <string>
Name of the user that vboxgetty will use. This user must exist in /etc/passwd and you must use this parameter.
group <string>
Name of the group that vboxgetty will use. This group must exist in /etc/group and you must use this parameter.
umask <number>
Vboxgetty will use this umask when creating new files. You must give the umask as an octal number. Default is 077.
dropdtrtime <seconds>
Number of milliseconds to hold the DTR-Line low to reset the modem. Default value is 800.
initpause <number>
Number of milliseconds to wait after initializing the modem. This is used to compensate the delay of the "NO CARRIER" response. Default value is 1500.
badinitsexit <number>
Maximum failures with modeminit. If this number is reached, vboxgetty exits. Default is 0.
ringtimeout <number>
Time in seconds to wait for a RING. If no RING is received within this time, no call is taken. Default is 5.
echotimeout <number>

commandtimeout <number>
Time in seconds to wait for a response to a modem command. Default is 4.

Full path of the vbox config file. Default value is <spooldir>/vbox.conf.
freespace <number>
Number of bytes that must be available on the partition with the spool directory, so that a call may be taken. Default is 0.
