Has anyone successfully configured a dialup connection with the modem configured to ttyS4, and PAP authentification. If so, could you give me explicit instructions on how to do it.



Have a look at /etc/wvdial.conf. Change the "Modem =" line to whatever tty you want.


OR IF (as it is on my system), the line says "Modem = /dev/modem",
then you need to check the symbolic link /dev/modem to see whether it actually points to /dev/ttyS4.


I'm afraid I'm not going to spend a lot of time in this e-mail getting explicit, as all the information regarding basic text editing and symbolic links are covered at these places:

http://www.tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/index.html

http://www.tldp.org/LDP/sag/html/index.html (love this one - got me started learning linux years and years ago).

http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag2/index.html

http://www.tldp.org/LDP/lame/LAME/linux-admin-made-easy/index.html

etc, etc, etc

Good luck and post back if you aren't understanding anything in these references for clarification.

Has you successfully configured a dialup connection with the modem configured to ttyS4?
