i am trying to connect to internet via mobile in rhel 4. i searched for the procedures in net and i found one which was given below. i did exactly how he explained and even scceeded to connect to the internet. the problem is in my mobile a symbol showing connection to internet is displayed but when i tried to connect from the browser of pc it is not connecting.even when i am disconnecting it is showing the amount of time it is connected to internet. any body please suggest the solution.
i just copied the text given below and paste in etc/wvdial.conf.
and run the command given.
For this you will have to copy the following as save it as /etc/wvdial.conf using the root account:
in the linux world there are many programs that use the pppd program. Point To Point Protocol Daemon wvdial uses it gnome uses gpppd kde uses kpppd wvdial is a comand line program I find using kpppd works fine just plug the usb device in and type lusb and to find out what com port it is using like this /dev/ttyACM0 dype dmesg and look for it.
if you are not used to command line programs try the gui ones and configure your device.
why do you want to connect the older rhel4 server to a mobil phone via a copper telephone line using 56k dial up ??
or is this using a usb cable ?
please give us a better discription of what it is you need to do and WHY you need to do it using the older rhel 4 operating system
( ps the older rhel4 might not have any support for new hardware -- to old)
the current red hat os is RHEL6
