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.
