I need someone to post a script that I can use to connect to my isp in redhat 5.0
My modem is a 56Kflex by KTX, external modem on com2 and my isp's phone number is 425306

It asks my login: name and my password: and then sayd "Here goes ppp..."
I need lots of details on how to run the script and where to put it etc... as I am new to linux... Also how do I setup my modem to listen to the script, I will pay 40 points for the answer I want, and please don't send me to rea a HOWTO file, I have read all the isp-howto and ppp-howto but I still have no idea??? I need a detailed description.

I am willing to pay up to 100 points to anyone that gets me to the point that I can connect and send and recieve email, use ircii and crap like that, I have just been able to configure xfree86 so I can use netscape
--Nige

ps where would I put the script so it is runnable???

Forgive me if this is too simple, but have you tried to configure PPP through the Redhat GUI network configuration tool?  As I understand it, modern PPP servers don't rely on English text:  You specify the username and password, and these are transmitted as part of the PPP protocol.

Yes, I have tried that, and it doesn't work... I would like a chat script pasted here, and instructions on how to use it, and then how to get ppp going once I have connected.....

You say you can get into X-Windows?  Run the network config tool to configure the PPP Interface.  You tell it the phone number to dial, your PAP username/password and off you go!  It will even put it in the startup so that by the time your box boots up totally you are connected.  If you still have a problem, then I can give you a pppd script, but this should do it.
