    Setting a dial-up connection in Red Hat 7.3 (Linux newbie)


    Hi,
    I need to connect to Internet using my Siemens S45 cellphone but don't know how to do it in Linux. I can do this easily in Win2k, the only problem is that I don't have the slightiest idea how it works in Linux. I tried the Internet Configuration Wizard and set all the parameters to the same values as in Win2k but when I pressed the button Activate nothing happened for a long time so I had to kill the activation.

    Does anybody know how to do this?

    (or where can I get information on how serial ports/modems/network connections/... work in Linux)

    Well, I have no idea how connecting through a cell phone would work to begin with, but if you were to sponsor me with one of those phones, I could find out for you. ;-)

    Joking aside, though - how do you connect it to the computer, and how do you set it up in Windows?

    Can't find built in modem on Dell Inspiron I8100

    In the modem configuration panel the Modem device selection form allows selection
    of the following:
    /dev/modem
    /dev/ttyS[0123]
    /dev/ttyl[0123]
    /dev/input/ACM[0123]
    /dev/M[01]
    On win 2K com3 works as well as can be expected. This implies /dev/ttys2 should work,
    but so far I haven't been able to get the modem to go off hook under Fedora Core 1.

    Any suggestions?
