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???

under the /usr/doc/ppp-2.3.3/scripts

there is some script ppp-on, ppp-on-dialer and someother, which is a sample of dial to isp

u just need edit the username, password and phone number to use it.

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.
