pppd isp callback

Hi all, basically I'm at my wit's end concerning this topic. I've been using Ubuntu for about 6 months and had been connecting via wireless to my other laptop running Windows and acting as my access point. The Windows laptop was dialed into my ISP and used callback because local toll charges are quite high here overseas.

My Windows laptop had an unfortunate death and so I purchased the linuxant driver set for my laptop and it works just great after I got them all setup and configured. Now I need to get the callback feature figured out with pppd and I'm having a TERRIBLE time with it. I've Googled all over the place and have looked high and low. I see a lot of posts referencing the topic, but they're usually in a foreign language. I suppose this has to do with the prvalence of callback being used in other countries.

ANY assistance with getting this sorted will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
David

Hi lomidien

Basically you need 2 pppd "calls".

First you call the isp and thell it to call you back:
pppd nodetach callback <YOUR-ISP-NUMBER>

Then you activate pppd to get ready to receive the callback from your ISP.

If you could provide me with more details (current chat-scipts, current pppd invocation and used hardware) I could go more into detail ;)

Best regards,
pC.
