       vboxgetty [OPTION] [OPTION] [...]


       Vboxgetty is the heart of vbox: it watches the isdn system
       and waits for incoming voice calls,


       -f, --file FILE
              Config  file  to   use.   Default   is   the   file

       -d, --device TTY
              ISDNdevice to use. You must use this option!

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
              Show version of program.


       vboxgetty  should  be started from the init process. To do
       this you need one line per vboxgetty in /etc/inittab  like
       this one:

       I5:2345:respawn:'/usr/sbin'/vboxgetty -d /dev/ttyI5

       The next step is to set up a working configuration for all
       ports in /etc/isdn/vboxgetty.conf: read  vboxgetty.conf(5)
       how  to  do  this  and  look at the example config file in

       You should then create  the  spool  directories  for  each
       user:                              /var/spool/vbox/<user>,
       /var/spool/vbox/<user>/incoming                        and
       /var/spool/vbox/<user>/messages.  Copy  the example config
       files  vbox.conf  and  standard.tcl  from  /usr/doc/isdnu­
       tils/examples  to  /var/spool/vbox/<user>,  read  the  man
       pages vbox.conf(5) and vboxtcl(5) and  edit  these  config

       Change  the  owner  of all files in /var/spool/vbox/<user>
       with "chown <user>.<group> /var/spool/vbox/<user> -Rv" and
       correct    the   permissions   with   "chmod   o-rwx,g-rwx
       /var/spool/vbox/<user> -Rv".

       The last step: run  "init  q"  to  force  init  to  reread


       rent caller, if there is one.

       If  vbox  has  waited enough RINGs and the caller is still
       ringing, it takes the  call  and  starts  the  tcl  script
       /var/spool/vbox/<user>/standard.tcl   (unless  you  change
       that name), and this script will do  the  rest  (normally:
       play standard and beep message, record and then play time­
       out message).


              default config file

              init starts vboxgetty via this file.

              the global vbox config file

              the per user configuration file for this port

              the tcl script used to communicate with the caller

              process id of the vboxgetty

              logfile of the vboxgetty


       vboxgetty.conf(5), vbox.conf(5), vboxtcl(5), isdntime(5)
