How Does External Modem work in Linux?
Okay I got hold of an old external dialup modem and it worked well in knoppix without any need for drivers.I just pointed it to the com port in kppp and it is detected. Contrast this with winxp which had to install a driver though it does it also automatically.
My question is-how come in linux the external modem did not need a driver?How does it work without a driver in linux?
