    Question Dial up connections on Suse 10.0

    I'm not sure if this is the right section for this, so forgive me if its in the wrong place. (i'm all new to this site and Suse.)

    I have managed to install Suse 10.0 and my machine dual boots very nicely, the only thing is that i cant connect to the net using Suse.

    i keep geeting an error likek this in the log file.

    trying to connect: smpppd
    connecting to smpppd
    Status: Dis connected
    Status: connecting
    Status: Dis connected

    pppd[0] died. pppd options error (Exit Code 2)

    If anyone could help me through this i would greatly appreiciate it.

    Try this first:

    In the file '/etc/ppp/options' there should be a line something like:

    /dev/modem 57600
    Instead of 'modem', it could possibly be something like 'ttySxx', where 'xx' is a number.

    If you cannot find either of these, can you post the output of the command (as root)?:

    grep -v "^#" /etc/ppp/options | grep -v '^$'
    If it is 'modem', make sure there is a soft link '/dev/modem' pointing to the actual modem device.

    If you don't know the actual modem device, issue this command:

    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --modem
    and post the output, or look for a 'Device File:' line.

    If all of this checks out, post back and we'll keep going...
