    Configuring modem

    I had the same problem for a while. If you'll notice, when setting up KPPP, go to the DEVICE tab, and there should be a pulldown menu with other options. Go through each one, and use "query modem" under MODEM tab to test and see if it can be found.
    You may end up in an "initializing modem" problem. That's as far as I got, still stuck there, but good luck to you.

    My technical junk:
    Distro: RH 9.0 i think, the latest one anyway.
    Modem: Conexant Generic softk56 (dialup softmodem)
    using KPPP
    Great place for Conexant linux modem drivers: http://linuxant.com

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. I THINK THAT WE NEED DRIVER FOR OUR MODEM. I FOUND A DRIVER BUT I CANNOT INSTALL IT. I THINK THAT THAT'S THE SOLUTION OF OUR PROBLEM. PLEASE ANSWER ME.

    guys, if you've got an internal/PCI modem, goto the tutorial section and have a look at the Winmodem/Linmodem post.

    Also try listing it. Goto a terminal window and type :-
    Code:
     ls /dev/modem -alF
    and see what you get.

    I get (with an external modem) :-
    Code:
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           10 Apr 29 11:49 /dev/modem -> /dev/ttyS0
    which shows which real device the symbol link (symlink) called /dev/modem is pointing at (/dev/ttyS0 is the same as Windows Com1).

    have fun

    kpp

    You must chose /dev/ttySo as your device. I could never get internal modems to work but have no problem at all with an eternal serial modem.
