dial-up via CLI..how?


In my feeble efforts to become more proficient I realised that eventually I am going to need to activate my modem (ttyS0) from the command line, and take away my GUI safety net

I am ashamed to admit that I cannot do it.

I have tried about a bazillion combinations of man, ifup, ppp, pppd etc etc

I believe that I am missing something basic, but I've hit a wall.

If it is relevant I had to use kppp to get the modem working in RH9 and FC1/gnome because I could not get the Gnome dial-up thingy to work.

Thanks for any tips,

mark
