interface PPP0


Hi,
I just got a Red Hat 9 and installed it on my computer. I was able to start the computer up fine but after I tried to connect to the net, and shut down, I couldn't start it back up. Each time it gets stuck at Interface ppp0 and won't initalize. I'm really new to Linux so please don't get to technical with me! Thanks in advance

what you mean by "interface ppp0"?
are you using dial-up connection?
if that's the case, try not to get your connection up on startup but after you login.
if it's not the case, please gave further info.

You need to give further information. How are you trying to connect? What software are you using, what steps are you going through and what error messages are you getting?

Computers are rather technical and details and error messages help us help you.

Can you rephrase the question? Especially, tell us what modem you are using.

# Configuring a real hardware pci modem
To configure a pci modem, open an x terminal and su - to the root account:
Code:
[fancy@tinwhistle fancy]$ su -
Password: 
[root@tinwhistle root]# cat /proc/pci
Look for your modem in the returned list. Look for something similar to mine:
Code:
  Bus  2, device   2, function  0:
    Communication controller: PCI device 151f:0000 (TOPIC SEMICONDUCTOR Corp) (rev 0).
      IRQ 5.
      I/O at 0xc400 [0xc407].
With this info, I use the setserial command:
Code:
[root@tinwhistle root]# setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5 port 0xc400 uart 16550a
Then I test the modem with the internet connection wizard and it works. I edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local and enter the setserial command:
Code:
[root@tinwhistle root]# pico -w /etc/rc.d/rc.local
My file for an example
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# Redhat /etc/rc.d/rc.local file
# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.

touch /var/lock/subsys/local
# configure modem
setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5 port 0xc400 uart 16550a
Now, it remains configured after a reboot.
