It can also be done using vgetty, and a voice capable modem. (I always
buy external when possible - LEDs, resettable, transportable,
bus-independant, and _can't turn out to be a winmodem_.)
Only modems supporting the at+v command set are usable. I'm waiting
on a backorder of one of the newer ZyXel models. I'll pkg-ize whatever
I end up putting together.
