You can use wvdial or kppp
Take a look at
tata photon plus
hii Jerome u said ur new to linux so as I.
there is a installation guide available in tataindicom website
or u can use the code
1. Connect / Plug your photon+ to the system and wait till it gets ditected.
2. Open a terminal, run a command "dmesg" and check it is showing the modem name as HUAWEI.
3. Run another command "sudo wvdial" and its will create a config file in /etc/wvdial.conf, something like shown below.
(if u dont have wvdial, you can download it from open.alumnit.ca)
by running "cat /etc/wvdial.conf"
or you can edit it using the commadn "vi /etc/wvdial.conf"
Modem = /dev/modem
Baud = 115200
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init9 = AT&V
modem=ur modem model
then run wvdial in terminal it will detect the modem
goto the network connection and add new vpn connection its "tata photon plus written there" juct connect it and it will be done
a easier way to install tata photon +
ive mentions the details to install tata photon+ in the blog in the next comment[COLOR="Silver"]
And adding to that...your 'blog' post is incomplete and inaccurate, and doesn't mention anything about usb_modeswitch, which is what is needed to see the device AS A MODEM to start with. Once it's 'switched' to a modem device, ANY Linux PPP dialer will be able to pick it up and configure it.

sorry i was just trying to help
the method i had posted was a much simpler way to install it
cause i had come here when i was facing this problem
and the posts above dint help much
sorry again !!
No problem. You can always share your knowledge by posting details here! :)
And I'm not sure about 'simpler'; typing in "usb_modeswitch", then configuring a connection with whatever dialer/network manager you wish seems pretty simple. That can even be automated in a script, which will perform the usb_modeswitch, then dial your connection for you.
Its not working for me.
I have the photon + connected, it shows mounted. When I try wvdial, it connects fine and IPs are assigned.Ping to this IP is working. PIng to url is also working fine... I have already set the nameserver in resolv.conf.
But unable to browse in Mozilla.
