    sounds like you are not pointing at the correct device. If your modem plugs into a serial port (called Com ports in Windows) then the device to use is /dev/ttyS0 (this would be called Com1 in Windows land), if it is pkugged into the second serial port (if you have more than one), then it is called /dev/ttyS1 (which would be called Com2 in windows).

    Any help?

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
