We rely on nvpagerd as our callout mechanism, being driven by TEC and responding
to alerts from Maestro and Netview.  The TEC fires a script which searches
through a home grown calendar mechanism to see who to call.  It also escalates
if nobody responds within a certain time.

However, it all fell over yesterday when nvpagerd stopped working.  In the end I
turned the modem off and on, restarted nvpagerd and all was OK again.

Any guesses why this is and how I can avoid it in the future.  The problem is
that the nvpage worked, otherwise I would consider running nvpagerd on two
machines and if one fails, then run it on the other.

Can I reset the modem between each pager? Can I force it to use another tty?
