Cousin having trouble with dial up in kppp with SBC dial, please help


He absolutly cannot connect, according to him, so he phones me all the time to help him. Im pretty much stuck. He says it hangs when he try's to connect with "initializing" and he seems pretty sure his Emachine doesnt use a winmodem. Please help, thanks.

"Pretty sure" doesn't count. Checking his documentation, the Emachine website, or Google for the model/chipset is better.
I would recommend checking out the "wvdial" program, "man wvdial" and "man wvdialconf". An error message from wvdial could be more useful in troubleshooting.
