Hi Everybody, I am using our only serial port(/dev/ttyS0) for pppd. We are also getting console output through serial. So, to get things going I blocked getty in inittab. I am currently connecting my box via ssh and then i can run pppd, chat script etc.Can I have a setup so that I can give exlusive access of serial to pppd when it runs and when it exits it will unblock it?
In inittab, getty is respawned. Should I run in any other way so that it can get killed to be used by pppd.
I tried by passing SIGSTOP to getty, it shows its state in "ps" as "T", but still pppd doesnt run as it should be. Then I Is it possible at all in this setup? Any confirmation/links will be of great help.
Thanks and Regards,
