I need step by step instructions for setting up ISDN on RH 6.0 linux. I need the linux box to act as a gateway that will automatically dial up to the internet if it receives a packet for a target that is not located on the LAN and if there is no activity on the line for about 10 minutes or so, it will automatically hang up.
I have tried to get it to dial up to my isp with the ifup ppp0 cmd... but I don't receive the login? etc that is in the script provided by redhat. Instead I receive some pretty strange data which I strongly believe is because the modem has been set up wrong. The modem I have is the ZyXEL 2864I ISDN TA with a builtin 28.8kb/s and fax modem. I can connect by 28.8 but some of the fun is lost, when I have to wait approx 20-30 seconds to get online, instead of the 2 seconds max with ISDN.
I am pretty new to Linux, so I need basic instructions and commands laid out the exact way and in the exact order, that I will have to enter them in Linux. I have not installed the X11 system as the computer is too slow to handle it.
PS. This question is worth 1000 points and for that amount I expect a little more than just a reference to a homepage somewhere on the web. So if that is all you can provide, don't bother answering the question. (Unless of course, that you will provide an email or icq number where I can get in touch with you)
Thanks in advance
