Fedora 10 and Compuserve ISP?


Does anyone even know if it is possible to connect and use Compuserve as a dialup ISP? Has it been done and how as I have been trying for sometime to no avail. I have plugged in everything I can find. I am using Fedora 10 and have had to revert to another ISP for the time being.
Thanks,
KFL

Compuserve is an ISP...been around for a LONG time. The OP stated that he is already using his DIALER to get to another ISP.

KFL, it's possible to, but you may have to use a tool like minicom to dial Compuserve, and see what prompts it's giving you, and go through KPPP to set up the response script accordingly. Also (just guessing), since they used to have a special 'connection program' to connect with, they may have different phone #'s for PPP connections, versus their programs connections. Be worth hitting their web site to see...
