wvdial.conf problem


I am trying to set up dial up networking on an external serial modem and Fedora Core 6. My wvdial.conf file looks like this:

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyS0
Baud = 115200
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ISDN = 0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
; Phone = <777-4277>
; Username = <THaughton@MyISP.Net>
; Password = <MyPassword>

Are the "<>" supposed to be used? I have tried it both ways.

And when I run wvdial I get this:

[THaughton@localhost ~]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost THaughton]# wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.54.0
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
ATZ
OK
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
OK
--> Modem initialized.
--> Configuration does not specify a valid phone number.
--> Configuration does not specify a valid login name.
--> Configuration does not specify a valid password.
[root@localhost THaughton]#

Thanks in advance for your time and attention in this matter.

Remove the <>.

After that, check the username your ISP assigned to you. You show an email address. Is that what was assigned to you as your username?

Then check the password. Remember that Linux is case sensitive.

That problem is now solved. It was not even getting to the point of dialing. I needed to remove the ";" remarks character from my wvdial.conf.

This is now where I am at:

[root@localhost ~]# wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.54.0
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
ATZ
OK
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
OK
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT714-4277
--> Waiting for carrier.
ATDT714-4277
CONNECT 115200
--> Carrier detected. Waiting for prompt.

--> Sending: (password)
Entering PPP Session.
IP address is 4.242.159.44
MTU is 1524.
--> Looks like a welcome message.
--> Starting pppd at Sun Dec 10 08:55:49 2006
--> pid of pppd: 2712
--> Using interface ppp0
--> pppd: odem
--> pppd: odem
--> local IP address 4.242.159.44
--> pppd: odem
--> remote IP address 209.247.5.124
--> pppd: odem
--> primary DNS address 209.244.0.3
--> pppd: odem
--> secondary DNS address 209.244.0.4
--> pppd: odem


I think that I am connected but I am not sure. Where do I go from here. My browser will not load a www page. The wvdial still has control of the terminal window. Please point me in the direction I need to go. Do I always have to be the root user to dial with wvdial?

ifconfig -a (not getting internet access in Firefox under gnome)

Once again it looks as though I am connected to the internet under wvdial but Firefox is unable to acess my ppp connection under Gnome (Fedora Core 6). The following is the output from ifconfig -a when I am connected. My ppp internet connection should be my only functioning network connection. I have directly entered an ip address in Firefox and it timesout so it should not be a DNS issue.
