    re: kppp found modem but is not initializing

    We probably need to know more.

    What kind of modem is it? Is is an internal or external one? If it is internal, is is a winmodem or is it fully hardware? If it is a winmodem, who made it and do you have the drivers installed. Mostly you will need to find drivers (or buy them). More winmodem information can be found at

    Next up which device is KPPP looking for. If it is /dev/modem or similar, you will need to set up a symbolic link to your actual modem device. As root:

    ln -s /dev/<modem device> /dev/modem

    If kppp produces anything in the log, it may help if you posted that too.
