DO you know Minicom??


I have an external serial 56k voice modem by US Robotics. I open minicom and type atdt2837888. 2837888 is my cell phone with full signal at home. Ok so my cell phone rings and I pick up but after a few seconds it just hang up. I try many times already but it only last a few seconds. Do I need to configure my modem in order to dial out a call normally? Where can I configure that? Thanks for the help..

Have you looked into the logs why it disconnects (you have a good chance to have it somewhere in /var/log). It shouldn't disconnect this way.
