Could be that you need an initialization string that is specific to your modem.

Whats the modem's make and model?

The rpm that i installed in my system is hsflinmodem-4.06.06.6
2-1.i586.rpm
Modem is soft modem linux v4.06.06.02 release (beta release)
release support linux 2.27&2.4 kernel
In network configuration i tried to activate the device (modem).i got the error -> /bin/ifup configuration for netone(this is the name, that i given to modem) not found.

usage:if up,device name.

*is it necessary to activate the modem, to make it properly work.

I don't think that is going to work for you due to this line right here...

release support linux 2.27&2.4 kernel

You stated earlier that you were running fedora core 4. I am running Fedora Core 3, and my kernel is of the 2.6 variety, so you are probably running a higher version than me. You should probably look for an updated driver from your modem's manufacturer (seeing as how they were nice enough to give you one in the first place, many don't).

Also, as you were provided with a driver, that probably means that your modem is what is called a 'soft modem'. This means that the modem doesn't have some of the parts that make up a modem, and relies on your computer to perform the tasks that its hardware can't do (hence, the need for the driver). So in short, yes, you are correct in thinking that the modem needs to be activated (in a sense).

An initialization string is a string of commands that are sent to your modem to activate and set the options of your modem. Init strings are often different for every modem. If you have an instruction manual for the modem (booklet or on the disk maybe), check there for the proper string first. If its not there, well then the Internet is full of em. Just have to look for the manufacturer and model number, then run a search.

Let me know how you fare and if you need any more help/info.

ya i do have doubt(kernel version) , just i want to conform that.

i didn't get that initializing string from my modem Manuel.

can you say what exactly that error in network configuration

In network configuration i tried to activate the device (modem).i got the error -> /bin/ifup configuration for netone(this is the name, that i given to modem) not found.

if my kernel version is different how that rpm got installed in my system.

*is that any rpm can install but its doesn't need to work properly

So KPPP says that the modem is good. wvdial is a program that intellegently dials your modem. It was the only dialer that worked for me.

1. link /dev/modem to the linmodem device
2. wvdial --config wvdial.conf
3. edit wvdial.conf and change Device, Username, Password.
4. rm /dev/modem
5. wvdial
6. browse
I think this is how it goes, for specifics, Google.
And yes, it is command only but it all you need to do once it is set up is open the console, type "wvdial", press enter, and press ^C when you are done. much easier IMO than using KPPP.
