Tried to connect to internet through Wvdial in Ubuntu 10.04 unable to get connection


Dear All


I tired to connect my Huawei USB modem through wvdial in ubuntu 10.04. Wvdial was installed. I configured the wvdial according to the details given in the website below.

After that i type wvdial in the terminal

Can you please paste the output of the following command?
ls -al /usr/sbin/pppd

The permission of this file should be like this.

$ ls -al /usr/sbin/pppd
-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 273312 2010-03-07 09:29 /usr/sbin/pppd

If you see difference, please execute the following command and then run "wvdial"

chmod 4754 /usr/sbin/pppd

I am stuck with huawei 1553 and reading through to see a salvation... but here I can give you some rapid help. You should run "sudo chmod 4754 /usr/sbin/pppd" to get rid with the "Operation not permitted" as not being root you can not alter files at "/usr/sbin/pppd" and
sudo goes around this if you are registred at sudoers. Otherwise (very bad) use "su" and
turn administrator.
