modem is setup properly as it will dial out of minicom, however, it doesn't seem to setup a propper PPP connection with the command "ppp-on" the resolv.conf script has my domain name and my nameserver IP's in it.  The hosts.conf is setup as well.  entries hvae been made to ppp-on to reflect the login and pass as well as the dynamic IP addressing.  Now I'm stumped as when ppp-on command is issued not hing happens I just get another command line... after sometime thinking its working in the back ground I attempt a ftp connect or telnet, lynx neither of the above worked.  When issuing PPP-OFF I was informed ERROR: socket or something isn't connected.  I would like to find away to connect PPP so that I can use web browsing ftp, telnet, and BitchX.  I have been unsuccessful.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,
You can get setup info at www.ibm.net. Go to helpdesk and get the linux ppp connection setup instructions. Substitute you ISP's info where appropriate if you are not using IBM for access. Make sure to follow all the instructions and you should be online soon!

Forget it, the only thing what you have to do is :

1. Edit your resolv.conf, there must be the ipnumber and name of the domainnameserver of your internet provider !
2. copy the ppp-on & ppp-off script to the /etc/ppp
3. adjust the ppp-on with the correct telephone number etc., but before your login name your must type a capital P, so when your loginname is siwyatt, its Psiwyatt, supply a password with it.
4. launch the ppp-on with ./ppp-on
5. type route del default
6. type route add default ppp0
7. you're connected !
8. for logoff, type ./ppp-off or simply turn off your modem !
