help installing modem in rh6
Posted on 1999-08-13
I have a Microcom Deskporte 28.8P external modem. manufactured in 1993(before compaq bought microcom). Anyway I've read Modem HowTo and Setserial and mans out the ying yang and still do not have the slightest idea how to configure this damn thing for linux.In windows the modem uses lpt1 set to irq7/ dma 3/and i/o's 0378-037F & 0778-077F.As far as I can tell the modem uses no resources except those taken by the lpt1 port.What is the linux equivelant to lpt1? lp0 maybe, how come I can't probe lp0 or setup lp0 in kppp? Any help getting the modem setup in linux will be a bonus. Thanks.
