I'm not sure if Minicom is what you want to dial-up. It may serve you better to just write your own small dial-up script to make sure all the settings are correct and that it'll use pppd directly instead of a com prog. The NO CARRIER is probably due to your phone hanging up, because it either, can't authenticate you or the protocol is wrong etc...Here is a link to a nice little how-to if you'd like to try it this way: [Go Here]

Minicom will only dial the number and connect to the server, so you still need to start the ppp daemon. You'll need to hit "ctrl-a" then "q" in minicom after you've connected to the server (this will drop you back to the console). Then type "pppd" at the console to bring up the ppp daemon. Just wait until you start seeing the garbage characters in minicom before you "ctrl-a" "q" back to the console.

You should also have a package named "wvdial" that you can use to connect to the internet via the console.

Is it the same to start the ppp daemon before connecting to the server?
How can I see if there is an autentication protocol and which is it?

Take a look at the Figuring out how your ISP wants to log you on section in the link taz.devil provied to see if you should use PAP or CHAP. Never tried starting the ppp daemon before dialing, so I don't know if that would work.
