serial external modems mostly get configured by wvdialconf. However I had problems lately with the ppp daemon. It got solved when I configured the modem at ttyS0 in the network control utility in RH 9.0. You might try it out.

I looked at the PPP-howto but it seems way out of date. Im running RH 9.0 1. Whats the best way to setup and use PPP dialup on the 9.0? Ive never used PPP on here before. 2. I tried wvdial and wvdialconf. wvdialconf scans through my machine but never finds a modem. The same modem works fine (Im using it now under XP). It scans many things and then 'hangs' after USB15 is printed. I just want to know whats the best way to get PPP working from experienced PPP users. And yes, I recompiled the kernel to include the PPP stuff. Thank you!
