Vgetty turns your voice modem into an answering machine. It adds voice capabilities to mgetty. This means, that you can handle data, fax and voice calls on one telephone line. How good all this works depends strongly on the modem you have. There are many modems with bad voice implementations and quite a few more expensive ones with a good hardware and firmware.

Vgetty was maintained and developed by Marc Eberhard with the help of many other people around the world. It is now developed and maintained by Marc Schaefer. See the file Credits, which comes with the source code, for details. The latest official vgetty version is always included in the mgetty+sendfax package from Gert Döring. Hopefully one day this Web page will give you some real information and documentation about vgetty. If you want to help with this task, please get in contact with Marc Schaefer.
