problem in connecting a EXternal Modem
i am just a beginner of the linux and just trying to know about the commands and other things..
now the problem is that
i have a modem which i have connected with the linux through PPP Dialer using the linuxconf but it does not get connected to the internet
the messages all i get is that "the line is busy "
but the same works with windows 98 and more details about the modem are
model is DFM 560 E
i have configured it Linux as default modem
connected to port /dev/ttyS1 (its equivalent in windows is COM2 port)
and when i tried to debug it thru the PPP Dialer
it gave me codes saying "configuring modem...
................ and some stuff and finally saying the line is busy"
and i can also hear the normal sounds when the modem gets connected

Ive tried to Google this and I found a bunch of people asking about this with the same problem, the only solution I found is this:
through wvdialconf try to find on which port you have
i think there is a strign that u need to pass ATX3 ,
so just check your wvdial.conf file and add this
string ATX3. then it should work.
Or in kppp there is an option wherein you can say ,
don't wait for dialtone.
