    problem in connecting a EXternal Modem

    hello guys ..
    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
    DATA/FAX/VOICE modem
    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

    that is...
    please any one try to help me and bare with me if any spelling mistakes

    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.

    Enjoy surfing.
