    Dial Up Troubles


    I'm working on installing FreeBSD 6.0 on an 10 year old notebook for a friend of mine and I'm having trouble getting the dial up connection to work. For one thing, the modem doesn't show up the way it should in dmesg:

    sio1: configured irq 3 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
    sio1: port may not be enabled

    If you try to connect (In this case, manually) to a service provider you get this:

    # ppp
    Working in interactive mode
    Using interface: tun0
    ppp ON fox> set device /dev/cuaa1
    ppp ON fox> set speed 115200
    ppp ON fox> enable dns
    ppp ON fox> term
    Warning: deflink: /dev/cuaa1: Bad file descriptor
    Failed to open /dev/cuaa1
    ppp ON fox>

    I've tried a few other things as well, like changing the speed to 38400, using the "set parity even" option, and trying other device names. I don't know who manufactured the modem or what its features are, since Hitachi no longer has customer support for notebooks.

    What modem are you using, look in the hardware notes in the handbook to see if it is supported, that could be the problem
