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



Steps.

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"



#

[Dialer Defaults]

Modem = /dev/modem

Baud = 115200

Modem Type = Analog Modem

Init1 = ATZ

Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

[Dialer info]

Init9 = AT&V
[Dialer photon+]


modem=ur modem model
baud=115200

dial command=atdt

baud=115200

dial command=atdt

init1=atz

init 2=at+crm=1

flow control=hardware

username=internet

password=internet

phone=#777

stupid mode=1
#



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

Don't post things to just advertise your personal blog, and don't reopen old threads that have already BEEN answered.

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.

Always glad to have new ways of doing things, but your blog post leaves out a good bit. Why don't you just post it here, and put in all the steps you followed? Remember; whey you say "copy a file"...some folks won't know how to do that, so be sure to fill in those blanks.

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.

Members, please suggest !!
