problems configuring my modem


Hi guys,
There is a self study cd that guides me on how to confingure my PC with a modem. In have a CDMA modem.The study cd tells me to got /usr/share/doc/script directory, configure my ppp-on script (telno, ip, netmask, username, passwd ). Then i should just they the ppp-on command on my computer and i will be able to use my modems but when i followed those instructions things failed. What should i do.

How about posting some useful information? We'll need more than "things failed"...how about some error messages? Version/distro of Linux? Where you got the 'study guide'? Make/model of the CDMA modem? ANYTHING you've tried???

The study guide that i use is CTB Nuggets for Comptia Linux+ certifications. I tried configuring my E325 CDMA modems as I was instructed when I typed ppp-on command it said unknown command and I tried to look for manual page of ppp-on. There was not manual page for that.

Still not saying version/distro of Linux, but based on the very vague error message, you don't have the ppp-on software loaded.

Hard to tell you how to install it, or where to look, without details.

If you're using Ubuntu (and probably any Debian based distro), you might be looking for the command pon.
