New cygwin agetty package available for download. Agetty is an
alternative to System V/SunOS 4 getty. agetty  opens  a  tty  port,
prompts for a login name and invokes the /bin/login command. It is normally
invoked  by init(8). The cygwin agetty port allows a user to logon into
Windows NT box over a serial line (serial cable or modem).

To install the package, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.  You'll find
agetty listed in the "System" category.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
