Thanks for the suggestion, but I do not think the problem is related to
the init string. From the USR Courier manual:
#CID=0 Disable Caller ID detection and reporting
#CID=1 Enable Caller ID with formatted output
#CID=2 Enable Caller ID with unformatted output
#CID=3 Enable Caller ID with formatted output and name suppressed
I use #CID=1 ...
But I will change the debug settings on mgetty to see if I can get more
detail in the mgetty.log.ttyS1 log file...
