    PPTP connection on ubuntu


    Hi all

    I have connected my ubuntu machine to a PPTP modem. This modem leases IP to the client in the 10.0.0.x subnet. You cannot connect to the Internet automatically and you have to configure an Internet connection to be able to access webpages etc. I manage on XP but have no idea how to do it on ubuntu...

    any help please?

    1. let your system detect your modem. Remember this require root access.

    1. let your system detect your modem. Remember this require root access.
    Code:
    wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf
    2. It will detect your modem and set proper config in /etc/wvdial.conf file. Once that done please set proper username and password in given file.
    something like this

    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    ISDN = 0
    New PPPD = yes
    Phone = #777
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Username = test
    Carrier Check = no
    Password = test
    Baud = 9600
    3. run,
    Code:
    wvdial
