Most distributions have some sort of “modem” or “internet” connection built into their configuration tools. Which distribution are you using?

If you're running KDE, you can use the kppp program to create a network connection. You might need to run this as root in order to get access to your modem.

If you want a traditional (console-based) introduction to setting up PPP, there is a tutorial:

http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/opsys/linux/L...linux-ppp.html

I went through the tutorial and dial-up, PPP connection works great.

Best,

Hello

I feel you can use KPPP i feel its really good and it even detects the modem. But i could only use an external modem DLINK 33.6 KBPS
However if you have a winmodem then it wont be supported in Linux.

This is untrue. Some windmodems have linux drivers: ie the Intel537ep
this is my modem, internal, winmodem, and it works better than it does in windoze

Maybe the ISP you are calling is using PAP or CHAP (My ISP does that). In that case I connect from minicom, up to the part with the login prompt. Then I go out of minicom (without hanging up) and start pppd. pppd knows how to pass the username/password itself by analyzing /etc/ppp/pap-secrets

I had the same error but solved the problem by setting the modem to "stupid mode on". You can do it in YAST, perhaps in KPPP or you can directly edit wvdial.conf and set there "stupidmode=1".

Okay, then like max_sipos suggested, switch between PAP and CHAP, it's probably possible to change in KPPP or look into YAST again.
