ok my original modem was a winmodem and it sucked, so i went through the junk pile (my closet) and found a USRobotics 56k sportster flash modem!
i'm using REDHAT9..
well on startup kazaam (name??) picks it up and i configured it.. everything was going well.. but i can't seem to dial out on it.. i've dropped into the terminal and fed lines into it such as
(its on ttyS0)
echo "ATA" > ttyS0
it picks up!
echo "ATDT0407021300" > ttyS0
nothing.. it seems all the lights flicker, i don't get anything...
so i tried to go into network config and install and activate it... still nothing happens...
i'm in windows atm and its working fine, can anyone give me any advice on how to fix this? its a pain, to access this forum i must log out of RedHat9 and log into windowsXP
i'm still very new to linux (3days) and still have little idea, pardon my ignorance if its something simple
