PPP connection using Caldera OpenLinux
Posted on 1998-02-15
I am having problems connecting to my isp. I get no sound, or even any response from my modem at all. I know it works
because I can get on the internet using win95. I obtained the following information from my isp:
the ppp-on script:
/usr/sbin/pppd /dev/cua2 38400 \
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -f /etc/ppp/chat-netcom" \
defaultroute modem crtscts lock
the chat-netcom script:
ABORT 'NO CARRIER'
OK ATDT(provider no.)
'PPP session' ''
the option script:
the ppp-off script:
# If the ppp0 pid file is present then the program is running. Stop it.
if [ -r /var/run/$DEVICE.pid ]; then
kill -INT `cat /var/run/$DEVICE.pid`
# If unsuccessful, ensure that the pid file is removed.
if [ ! "$?" = "0" ]; then
echo "removing stale $DEVICE pid file."
rm -f /var/run/$DEVICE.pid
# Success. Terminate with proper status.
echo "$DEVICE link terminated"
# The link is not active
echo "$DEVICE link is not active"
the resolv.conf script is set up with the proper domain and
I have also tried using dip but I still get no response from my modem. Win95 says that my modem is connected to COM 1 and the serial.vxd driver is COM 2 and has an irq3 and address 0x02f8. Using the setserial command, it shows the same thing but is /dev/cua1 (which is also COM 2). So how do I get my modem to respond? I have read the serial, ISP-HOOKUP and several other HOW-TO's and get the same result.
