[linux-elitists] "reverse" rtty type of utility?
Mon Jun 14 13:18:47 PDT 2004
I'm throwing this request out this way since I've been unsuccessful in my web
searches and the local communities have looked at me sideways for making such
a request. Perhaps the eclectic group here has some insight or experience in
I'm looking for a "reverse" rtty/conserver/ttywatch type of program.
I have an Ascend Max which has 24 modems hanging off of a T1 that I'd like to
present to HylaFax as character devices. The Ascend has a "telnet-a-modem"
feature whereby you connect to port 5000 and you are in a "live" session with
a modem; you can send the standard fare of Hayes AT commands and so on.
Hylafax only works with character devices so I figured there might be
something out there which emulated a regular character device and would relay
the characters send to a telnet session, establishing it if necessary and
relaying any characters sent by the remote side back.
The OpenH323 people have created T38modem which will emulate a character
device (and faxmodem) and present the session to a T38-compliant voice
server. rtty and friends all do the opposite of what I'm looking for; they
allow you to telnet to a local character device.
So, before embarking on my own mini Frankenstein's software monster I thought
I'd ask and try and prevent some wheel-reinventing, if at all possible.
