Well thanks for that mjolnir That first link is excellent!
And guess what.... success of a sort!!!!!!!
I went to http://open.nit.ca/wiki/
and posted a question there and it was suggested to:
- add a blank line before [dialer Evemail] and
- type wvdial Evemail to get things started
I did this and bing my modem dialled out!!! It failed a couple of times to connect properly, but then authorised and worked.
I was SO pleased, but then arose my new problem.... My Browser and Email program (Mozilla and Evolution) both were unable to connect to the 'net.
I checked and my phone line was busy making modem'computer noises, but neither program would connect. Mozilla said it was online (but wasn't) and I connected and disconnected it using its icon, but to no avail.
If you have any ideas, post 'em up, but in the meantime I'll go and see what I can find out.
Once again thanks for the help
