kppp->modem query, but "does not respond"


First, thank you tcaptain. I almost could not find your reply when turning on the computer this morning

My question is: after installing the driver for the modem, and using kppp to query the modem, the port is open, but I got the message "modem does not respond". Has anybody encoutered this problem before? I just want to know whether it is a problem of the device driver, or I did not set the correct parameter in kppp. Many thanks

Yeah, it is the problem of the driver. After installing a new one, I got "modem ready".
But I still could not dial it out. I am now in Italy and we use a unique dialing number 7020001033, without the country code or local code. In the KPPP, I just add this number and unclicked "use dialing rules" and unclicked "wait for tone before...". But I got some ppp problems when "logging on". Are there any setting I should do in KPPP? Thanks again.

there's different stuff you have to do by country i guess,
so you shouldn't be asking me. but, there is also
ppp-go and wvdial, either of which may let you get your
dial-up working, since they both work in different ways.
they are both terminal based, not point and click apps.

Oh, it took me time to pick this thread back.
How everything is working fine. The only problem is the "timeout" period of pppd was set too small. It should be 60s.
