I am dumber than a stump where "linux" is concerned but have been trying to become microsoft free for years (over 20) and Ubunto appears to fill the bill but am unable to get dialup to connect. Am running a 2.4 gig AMD, 1 meg memory, Asus A7N8X-E M/bd, USR Courier modem and trying to connect to AT&T dialup. I have all the "account" info from AT&T and but so far have not been able to plug the info in correctly ( a guess) as Ubuntu asks for info using different terms than AT&T.
Here are the terms shown by AT&T
LoginName assigned by AT&T
Password assigned by AT&T
POP name assigned by AT&T
POP Password My choice
SMTP Server Assigned by AT&T mailhost.worldnet.att.net
NNTP Server Assigned by AT&T postoffice.worldnet.att.net
DNS number 201.127.129.1
DNS number 201.127.160.1
The AT&T dialup fone number and POP password should be easy to assign if I am finding the various places where it should be entered and cheking the correct "boxes"
A friend with DSL (DSL not available here at any cost!) sailed thru the installation of Ubuntu with no problems and the dialup is the only holdup to me dumping microsoft even tho bill just stated that he was going to provide upgrades faster<VBG>

I have split your completely unrelated post out of the one in
Newbie you were hi-jacking, and moved it to the Ubuntu forum.

Hijacking threads is very poor netiquette. ;}


Cheers,

The program you're probably searching for may be found in the menu: Applications >> Internet >> GNOME PPP.
