Description of problem:
I am having a rough time trying to figure this one out.  For some
reason, vgetty does not pick up and present the greeting message when a
Sprint or Voice Stream customer calls into the computer.  It answers all
other phone calls fine.  Here is what the log looks like, when it does
not pick up those calls:

06/25 16:33:18 yE1  waiting...
06/25 17:13:29 yE1  wfr: waiting for ``RING''
06/25 17:13:29 yE1  wfr: waiting for ``RING''
06/25 17:13:33 yE1  wfr: found action string: ``CONNECT''
06/25 17:13:34 yE1  WARNING: starting login while DCD is low!
06/25 17:13:34 ##### data dev=ttyE1, pid=22557, caller='none', conn='',
name='', cmd=
'/bin/login', user='1496'

Basically, you can hear the modem (Zyxel 1496, ROM 6.19) ring twice, but
the phone keeps ringing.  I'm guessing the Zyxel picks up somehow, and
according to the log, thinks it's a data call?  

I'm guessing the Sprint and Voicestream customers phone must send some
sort of signal in their ring, defeating vgetty some how. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sprint or Voicestream Customer calls into machine running vgetty

Actual Results:  Voice greeting message is not played.

Expected Results:  Voice greeting message should be played, like it does all
other calls.

Additional info:

Verizon wireless works fine.

Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2005-08-01 21:18:04 UTC
Apologies for the very long delay in processing this bug - it got lost somehow
and I have only recently taken over maintenance of the mgetty package.
I have not been able to reproduce this problem with mgetty-voice-1.1.33 and
vgetty with a V253 compliant modem (Hayes Accura), receiving voice calls from
a GSM mobile phone . 
If you can still reproduce this problem with mgetty-1.1.33, please re-open 
this bug - thank you .
