Hello Unix Users,

I want to setup a USR Robotics Courier 28.8 modem on a SPARC20 workstation running Solaris 2.5. I don't have a
splitter cable for the serial port.
I want to use the modem to dial-up my internet provider
and access the WWW, etc.
Please provide some 'how to' help for me, including device
files, dialer configuration, etc.
Thanks in advance!

First to the cable: you don't need a splitter cable. If you use a regular cable it will work, but the second serial port cannot be used.

Second to the software setup. There are really several things to do. I went through it and it would take to long to write down everything. However, I got help myself. The best information was from Celeste Stokely on how to setup up a modem to work with Solaris. Go to http://www.stokely.com/index.html and from there continue to the link "Celeste's Tutorial on Solaris 2.x Modems and Terminals" I think you will find everything you need there, also on PPP setup.

If you run into a specific problem, just drop a comment to this question.

Good luck,

I want to move my internet connection from a DOS/WINDOWS PC
to a Sun SPARC20 workstation running Solaris 2.5.
I would appreciate any advice on internet software for Solaris.
