Logging in to Mac OS X from modem

I got a support call from my old friend, Meszi. He has a customer who wanted

to use his Mac server from a modem connection. After a sort search I found

mgetty has been ported to Mac OS X. The link is here:


I had to change Makefile a bit (there is no fax and modem user or group), I

bet nobody will be enough.

On panther I had to remove an “extern int sys_nerr;” from the logfile.c,


After make install I had to make the terminal entries in /etc/inittab, but

after this I had no time to test it…
