How-To configure a dial-up modem in FC6
Posted on 2007-04-02
I have a fresh install of FC6 on a Dell Optiplex GX260 (P4 2.4GHz, 512MB RAM, 80GB HDD). I need to install and configure a PCI-based modem (Conextant HCF 56k Data/Fax modem). lspci -v sees and lists the modem at memory address ff6f0000, and at I/O port dcf8.
My problem is that I cannot list the device for configuration in the network manger, I just don't know what to add for settings. It needs:
Modem device: /dev/modem/ is the default setting.
Baud rate: 460800 is the default
Flow control: None is the default, I would assume "Software (XON/XOFF)" to be correct.
Modem volume: Off is the default.
I have never configured a modem on Linux before, please help... :)
