I'm having major problems configuring my internal Bitsurfr Pro ISDN modem under linux.  I have win95 on the same machine, and it works fine there, but linux won't recognize it.  I've got RedHat, so I've been using the netcfg utility to try and configure it, but no luck so far.

I've already tried reconfiguring the modem under win95 and doing a warm boot.  (Sometimes when i power down, win95 won't recognize the bitsurfr pro unless i change it's COM port under Device Settings.)

My final goal is to have my 486 with the bitsurfr pro and linux use ppp and ip masqarading so my p133 with win95 and my roommates macintosh can get internet access.

Thanx!!

I'm sorry for you, but unttil now, there is NO kernels drivers or
modules for the bitsurfr ISDN internal. Unless there is a siemens compatible chipset on your board or there is any hardware (not software) serial com port emulation like with Us-Robotics's one.

You must wait or use Win95.
By the way, there are some win95 programs to do masquerading...

Byby.

Hy again,
well, this utility is for one having trouble getting the right
irq/io/dma of their board. BUT, for boards that ARE inclueded in the kernel or via a modul. For exemple sound boards like AWE 32Pnp or Network cards. The isapnp tools help the driver to find the concerned board, but if ther is no driver....nothing append.
So long.
