Post How to connect using chestnut-dialer


Hi,
I'm trying to connect to the internet using vodafone datacard (dongle) on vector linux 7 (standard). WICD does not help to connect 3G datacards. Can anyone walk-through how to connect using chestnut-dialer? Or is there any other way to connect? Thanks for the help in advance.

Ah, so. As this is a Slackware forum I looked right pass you are using Vector Linux.

A couple of years ago when I was traveling more I used Chestnut Dialer to connect to the 'Net via my cellphone. Worked like a charm.

Perhaps you can find the information you will need in one of these threads:
