Hardware used:
TRENDnet 56K USB 2.0 Phone, Internet, and Fax Modem TFM-561U (White)

Under openSUSE 11.3, this modem is immediately detected when plugged into a USB port and the device file shows up as /dev/ttyACM0 (assuming you only have one).

The TRENDNet modem will respond with a device id of 56000 given the command ATI. mgetty that ships with openSUSE 11.3 will incorrectly detect this modem as a Rockwell and proceed to issue commands that the TRENDNet modem does not understand for voice modes.

Internet2 (yes, that's the logo)

Yes, the Internet 2 exists. Yes, they continue research into tools and protocols for high speed networks. This afternoon, I wanted to set up a server running the Internet 2 Network Diagnostic Tool. I wanted to run it with their "fakewww" server so that it would be isolated away from other services on the server I set aside. While fakewww allows one to specify the port it binds to, it does not allow it to bind to a specific address. Again, I am made sad. So, I fixed it and submitted the patch to the fine folks at Internet2, if they take the patch, I'll edit this to point at the release with the patch.

NDT servers are pretty nifty, here, try out ours:
