       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

       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

       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>
              Time in seconds to wait for the echo from the modem. Default  is

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

       alivetimeout <number>
              After this time in seconds vboxgetty will check if the modem  is
              still responding to modem commands. Default is 1800.

       compression <string>
              Audio compression to use to record new messages. Possible values
              are ADPCM-2, ADPCM-3, ADPCM-4 and  ULAW.  The  ALAW  compression
              mode is no longer supported. Default is ULAW.

       spooldir <string>
              Spool directory to use. This directory must exist. It’s used for
              control    files    of    several    programs.    Default     is

       vboxconfig <string>
              Full   path   of   the   vbox  config  file.  Default  value  is

       freespace <number>
              Number of bytes that must be available on the partition with the

       debuglevel <string>
              What        messages        are        be       written       to

              letters  representing  the  severities  of  the  messages to log
              (F=FATAL, E=ERROR, W=WARNING, I=INFO, D=DEBUG, J=JUNK).  Default
              is FEWI.
