protocol character sequences recognized by getty
The /etc/gettyacts file contains definitions of character
sequences that identify PPP, FAX and similar
transmission formats for getty to detect.
Each entry in gettyacts consists of a line containing the
following four fields:
Name of protocol to be detected.
Program to be executed to process the connection.
List of arguments to program.
A space-separated list of characters to be matched, represented as octal
or hexadecimal values.
The following example entry from gettyacts executes the
PPP shell to allow nppp to log in if uugetty
detects the sequence of hexadecimal characters shown:
PPP:/usr/lib/ppp/ppp:-u nppp:0x7e 0xff
This character sequence could also be represented in octal form:
PPP:/usr/lib/ppp/ppp:-u nppp:0176 0377
