You could try to leave it to ppp, just for testing purposes.
Everything you need is a number you can dial. Here's an
example for an /etc/ppp/ppp.conf that would do something
# --- ppp.conf -----------------------------------------------
set log Phase Chat LCP IPCP CCP tun command
ident user-ppp VERSION (built COMPILATIONDATE)
set device /dev/cuad0
set speed 115200
set dial "ABORT BUSY ABORT NO\\sCARRIER TIMEOUT 5 \"\" AT OK-AT-OK ATE1Q0 OK \\dATDT\\T TIMEOUT 40 CONNECT"
set timeout 120
set phone PHONE_NUM
set authname USERNAME
set authkey PASSWORD
add default HISADDR
set phone 0123456789
set authname QWERTZ
set authkey ASDFGH
add default HISADDR
# --- ppp.conf ----------------------------------------------- end ---
With such a file, you can now:
# ppp test
*click dit dit dit dit... dooooo doooooo... *
In this case, you have confirmed that the serial modem works as
intended. You can of course enter real data for an ISP that offers
modem dial-in to get online. :-)
You can find more help and examples in "man ppp".
the modem has 2 leds. one yellow and one green. according to the manual
the yellow should be blinking as follows:
Fast Blinking (0.5 sec on/0.5 sec off) Net search/ Not
Slow Blinking (0.3 sec on/ 2.7 sec off) Registered, Full Service
i think i'm only seeing 'Fast Blinking'..... i wonder what 'Net search'
really means and where it's searching for it. it's connected through a
RS-232 to the serial port...
But it IS a modem to dial tones and connect to something?
"Net search"... no idea what that could mean. Serial modems usually
don't search for nets...
Or am I completely misunderstanding you and you're trying to find a
command access to a DSL modem that has a serial line?
