Unhappy lancard and mordem both way connection


hello

i am using slackware 9.1

i have a lan connection it is unlimited but it has proxy and many necessary port is blocked (so cheap connection)

i can only browse and download files from net with it.

i also has a motorola (may be spell mistake) voice modem (internal)
and i want to use net via phone line (it is direct connection)

(but the problem is i have to buy card and it is costly so i wanna use it ocationally (for chat in irc or java chat room send mail etc)

now i am using net in slackware 9.1 lan connection

but how can i config my modem and use the phone connection (after stoping the lancard connection temporarely

or how other way i can use the modem via phone connection

bye

Hi salahuddin_66,
First you have to know if your modem is supported under linux. Open a terminal session and enter "lspci -vv | less". If you find a device with "00:xx.x Serial controller: Motorola ...." you have a real modem. However, if you find a device with "00:xx.x Communication controller: Motorola ...." you have the 'so called' winmodem. In this case go to http://linmodems.org/ to see if it is supported.
If anyone of the two appears, then you may have an old ISA modem. You also must identify it. In this case try google with the complete name of your modem or the name of the chip on the board.
Anyway, if you have a hard modem, all you need is to configure ppp, giving your ISP, phone, your account and password and establish the connection. With some sophistication, you can use firewall rules to send to your lan card the ports it accepts and the rest of the traffic to your ppp dial up.
Best surfings.
