Originally posted by kater0000 it works with windows, so why wouldn't it on linux ?
5110 as a modem? hmm ... just learned something new
At least the 5110 is no standard AT compatible modem, which is why you can't simply use it like any serial modem. I didn't know gnokii up to now, but it looks like this is what you need to get the 5110 running.
i discovered this by accident whilst working on my windows system; i installed the nokiatoolkit so i could type sms on my regular keyboard, an when i wanted to call into my isp, it was the nokia wich was calling
so i'm quite shure it does work, i'll keep you posted about the results
i found gnukii on some forum, but is seems the poster there had made a typo, and changed the o into a u. so i was looking for information on gnukii with google, but i made the same typo (only in reverse).
this means i found a lot more info now, so i can continue trying to get the 5110 to work
ok, if we're able to pull this off i'm writing a howto on this thing
there's a little setback for the moment, i messed op my urpmi, so i have to reinstall some things, but i'm thinking of switching to gentoo (wich extually puts this topic in the wrong place, i think it better fits in general networking (if any mod reads this, this is my suggestion ))
i too read about the function to create a virtual device, but it didn't say that it created a standard AT modem. i'll look into it.
btw, i have both the 5110 and the 6110
i hope to have a working computer tomorrow, in the meanwhile i'll google some more
really thanks for spending your time helping to solve this problem!
