   Hi,

       I try to make connection using "minicom"
    ( Linux, kernel 2.0.30 ). My modem is on, since I
    heard its voice. It also works well in Win95.
       I get "minicom" message "connected", I login and
    give my username and password. I see that login is
    successful since if I give any non-true password I
    get rejection from provider.
       After that I get a line of a garbage and then while     about 30 seconds I receive message "NO CARRIER".     Please, help.
       I tried also different speeds as 19200, 38400,
    115200.
       I tried also "ppp-chat" ( ppp-2.2) scripts             connection and this doesn't help.  

       Thanks, klivlend

klivlend - if you're trying to connect to an ISP, then you need to use both ppp and chat to make a connection. minicom doesn't talk IP.

The script to use would be something like :
pppd defaultroute /dev/cua1 connect 'chat "" ATDT(provider no.) ogin: login_id word: your_password'

Regards,

Jason

BTW t2pp is correct - minicom isn't for ppp connections.

Are you supposed to be connecting to your ISP via PPP or a
shell?  The line of garbage characters after your login sounds
a lot like a PPP negotiation session.  The hangup after 30
seconds would be the ISP giving up and disconnecting you after
failing to negotiate a PPP session.
