    KPPP not working with ActionTec v92 External Modem

    ActionTec v92 external modem.

    FC4 detected modem, and able to query after adjusting to serial port ttys0.

    Continually get a "MODEM BUSY" while either trying to connect to the internet or simply query the modem.

    Or it will not connect at all WITH KPPP, but appear to dial, but can't connect.

    Somehow, I am able to connect when going through the "Network Devices" and "Activate" the connection which is okay, but still odd that it can't function with KPPP.

    Your /etc/ppp/peers/provider file should look like this:

    connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/peers/provider"

    I'll bet it doesn't !

    Also, do NOT use the lock file when configuring kppp dialer.

    Tried the changes, but still would not work

    I tried it several different times, but still cannot get it to work. I even tried it as root with no avail. (Note: ActionTec v92 external serial modem on Fedora Core 4 with Gnome/KDE)

    Yes, I made sure to change "provider" to my actual provider. I also deactivated the "LOCK" option under the "DEVICE" tab as instructed.

    connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/peers/Hypercon"

    After changing, the "Modem Busy" message did not occur when I queried the modem, but still no dialing, even while logged in as root.

    Thanks for your input. I wonder if the Gnome PPP dialer would work?
