Mandrake 10 drakconnect problem


Hello everyone,

I decided to try tackling my drakconnect/dialup issues again,

basically, I'm able to go through the setup just fine, but when I make an attempt to connect to the net, it doesn't do anything. The modem doesn't try to dial or anything.

This is a typical log of me trying to set up my dialup connection from my /var/log/syslog

---------------------------------------------

What I find odd is that it doesn't actually symlink anything to /dev/modem and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/net_cnx_up doesn't actually exist.

I managed to get myself connected to the net by messing around using
cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
./ifup-ppp ifcfg-ppp0

Does anybody have some insight or an example net_cnx_up I could see?

thanks,
Steven Picken
