but i want to use vgetty and all the docs talk about /etc/inittab i do not think this file exists in freebsd so where do i make my changes so that vgetty starts instead of mgetty
also my log file for mgetty.cuaa1 has some problems with my modem mabey you can help me with that too.
i use freebsd 4.8 and a usr 3com pci modem this is what bsd sees for a dmseg sio0: <3COM PCI FaxModem> port 0x6c00-0x6c07 irq 9 at device 15.0 on pci0 sio0: moving to sio4 sio4: type 16550A
this is my mgetty log mabey i should turn up my debug settings however i really hate to reboot my system
Is there a way to reset mgetty vgetty without rebooting as my isp changes ipaddress alot which causes my lots of dns greif and missed emails and web hit etc etc etc
