I am using agetty with both Win95 and WinXP. On WinXP everything works
fine. On Win95, I have a problem.
When the Win95 machines modem answers the call, agetty correctly prompts for
the login: id. I type it in and notice that every character I type is
immediately echoed back to me (I'm using hyperterminal). This is as I would
expect based on the agetty code. Each character is read and written back to
Once I enter the login id, agetty spawns login.exe. From this point on, the
characters I type are echoed back to me on every second character. The
problem is that if I type a command with an odd number of characters such as
"ls\r", nothing happens. Once I type one more '\r' or even a space, the
command is executed. The extra character I typed is also echoed back,
usually after the next shell prompt.
What could be causing my input to be processed two characters at a time.
This does not occur on an XP machine running agetty.
