Hi Peoples… I just moved house and don’t have adsl for another week or so, so im forced to use dialup. I have never used dialup in linux before, i always had adsl. And i can’t get dialup working in linux for the life of me. So im forced to use Windblows Xp.
ok…here is what i have done so far…(im using Opensuse11 kde 3.5x)
I have installed all the packages that i am aware of to get dialup working… kpppd, kppp, kinternet,
I have followed several suggestions from other posts, but no luck yet. (i might of installed a couple other packages that I read about, not sure. But i should have everything i need)
Although, I think the problem is that it can’t find my modem. in yast, hardware it tells me my modem is installed in /dev/ttylt0, but I cannot find that location in the dialup program. Its got lots of others but not mine. And i can’t see a way to manually add it into kppp.
The wizard was no help because my country wasn’t in there “Australia” so i did it all manually…
i have tried configuring my modem to use /dev/modem, and i tried /dev/ttyS0, “I read suggestions to try these” But still no luck, it says… 'modem ready… then Modem not responding"
I have tried every variation i can think of…
Any suggestions? am i missing something simple?
ps my modem is internal, and it is a LT WinModem 56k Data+Fax+Voice+Dsvd
