No idea what "ugrib" is. And we might be able to help you with your phone, if you provided details. Like version/distro of Linux, how your phone is connected to your PC, what you've done/tried, etc.

Depending on how your phone behaves, and how it's plugged in, you may just be able to run "wvdialconf", and have it detected, then use wvdial to connect to the internet.

$4000 phone.

#2.40 a minute per call.

And you want to know the weather?

I think there free satellite fax type of weather provided by the US military for world locations. Actually used to use a fax to print it out. Not sure what the download frequencies were.

It may be possible to get a different product from them to view both data and voice.

ugrib with linux

Ugrib is a viewer for grib files which give wind pressure etc date usful when navigating at sea
i have a ubuntu distribtion, thuraya satellite phone is connected via usb
i used wvdial but wvdial.conf must be adapted to thuraya. Any idea on what to put in this file?
thxs
the nice thing about ugrib is that you tell it inmarsat satelliteas a com and it finds the phone and get it to download the gribfile
unedr windows a connection is set up for thuraya (1722 no id no pwd speed 9600
Zgrib runs under linux but i dont know how to tell it to use the satellite connection

Yes...as I said in my first post, run wvdialconf, and it may set things up for you, depending on how your phone is detected.

When you connect with wvdial, that makes the connection. So set up zgrib for whatever device is detected/used by wvdialconf.

From a brief Google search:
Code:
Stupid Mode

When wvdial is in Stupid Mode, it does not attempt to interpret any prompts from the terminal server. It starts pppd immediately 
after the modem connects. Apparently there are ISP's that actually give you a login prompt, but work only if you start PPP, rather 
than logging in. Go figure. Stupid Mode is (naturally) disabled by default.
More importantly: does your modem WORK now?
