pppd isp callback
Posted on 2006-10-28
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.
