Help internet modem key TIM Alice ONDA MT503HS on Slackware 14.0
I have a Slackware 14.0 32-bit and I have a TIM internet key Alice ONDA MT503HS I work very well in graphics mode using KDE and kppp.
Now I want to use this key in Slackware started in text mode (not KDE).
What should I install to run the key, what program to use ?
It looks as though wvdial is connecting successfully. After connecting with wvdial, check the contents of /etc/resolv.conf. You will probably see that the temporary nameserver entries placed there by kppp have been deleted.
Then check the contents of /etc/ppp/resolv.conf. When you connect using pppd, the supplied DNS information is stored there. You will need to 'mv /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.orig; cp /etc/ppp/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf'.
When you have finished a session, I suggest doing 'mv /etc/resolv.conf.orig /etc/resolv.conf', otherwise the old information will be retained which can then upset the settings temporarily added by kppp.
This can become a pain if you switch a lot between using kppp in the GUI and pppd at the CLI.
An alternative would be to dump using kppp and wvdial, and starting using NetworkManager via nm-applet in the GUI and nmcli at the CLI.
