Re: USER can't use Modem



Hi Dusan, 

Further to my late posting.  I have recovered /dev/modem and made it
symbolic linked to /dev/ttyLT0.  Modem is now working. 

Get back to your advice.  Some thing strange happened.  It works but is
not stable. 

Konsole window 
$ su - 
password 
# chmod +s /usr/sbin/kppp  (return) 
# (nothing visible recognised) 

exited Konsole window 

KStart -> Extras -> Internet - > KPPP 
kppp started without asking for password 

First I configured another kppp for USER and made it worked

Started Konsole window 
$ kppp 
kppp started without asking for password 

$ cu -l /dev/modem
Connected. 
AT 
OK 
~[localhost]. 
Disconnected. 
$

After testing several times, the problem returned

KStart -> Extras -> Internet - > KPPP 
kppp started asking for password

Started Konsole window 
$ kppp 
kppp started asking for password 

Rebooted PC (also tried - shutdown and re-start)

Started Konsole window 
$ su - 
password 
# chmod +s /usr/sbin/kppp  (return) 
# (nothing visible recognised) 

Problem could not be solved.

B.Regards
Stephen
