Sorry, the "silent answer" part of your first query didn't click.  I took
the easy way out and got a second line which is dedicated to my fax/data
use.  (I keep thinking I should convert the two analog lines to an ISDN
line, but have been quite successful at procrastinating in making that

I would *guess* that you could have your mgetty configuration look for
an additional magic string that identifies the call type and synthesize
a local ring signal for a voice call... but its only a guess.

Sorry I missed the point of your original question.
