Hi,

If you have a V90 modem: see this howto
For a DSL modem: that's this one

Hi

Drop me a mail at sviljoen@<-removethis->polard.com and I'll mail you a precise howto by Bill Unruh that got me going with surfing via dialup with RedHat 9.

The short version is that you need to

1. Pray you don't have a winmodem.
2. Plug everything in and make sure it is powered up and correctly connected.
3. Identify the serial port you are going to use (ttyS0 = COM1 ttyS1 = COM2).
4. Use the chat to start up your modem and tail -f /var/log/messages to discover if your ISP uses CHAP or PAP authorization by dialing in and watching the messages log.
5. Put your username and password into either the /etc/ppp/pap-secrets or /etc/ppp/chap-secrets auth file.
6. Write your ISP DNS server IP addresses into /etc/resolv.conf
7. Make sure /etc/host.conf contains order hosts,bind
8. Connect with something like this typed in a console (best to put this in a script, run as root):

pppd /dev/ttyS0 115200 debug user username@isp connect "chat -v '' ATDT555123123 CONNECT '\d\c' "

9. Disconnect with something like this

killall pppd (as root)

Hope this helps some!
