Modem 56K to Modem GPRS


Hy,
i have a PC (PC_A) Linux Embedded sistem (with arm linux) with a modem GPRS. In this system there is a pppd demone and a getty program (only getty)!

The second PC (PC-B) is a linux PC(debian lenny ) with a 3com usrobotic 56k modem.

I want to connect PC-B directly to PC-A.

I had test to connect with minicom calling from PC-B the PC-A with AT command and the connection is OK, but i dont view the connection in route table.

I want to know how i must to connect the PC-B to PC-A? I must to transfert a small file from PC-A to PC-B.

thanks....

Good question.. I'v always wondered how to use a modem(s) as a regular network device.. locally..

Which is what I gather you are trying to do?

The only thing I could suggest.. even tho I have never researched it much.. is to have a server setup on the side you want to dl info from.. like an ftp server..

Good luck.. lettuce know..

Maybe try another program.. mgetty? or use bluetooth to transfer the file? or wammu?

Why is it important for the the pc-a to show up in the routing table? This seems like more of a 'direct connect' than a regular modem or network situation.. no?

hy,
the problem is that che PC-A is an embedded PC with ARM linux! There isn't ugetty! There are only getty e pppd.

the second problem is that i must call from PC-B ... because i must change the time when i create a connection (i can't use cron to create the connection from PC-A to PC-B)!

thanks

I know you can do Packet Radio over an RS 252 connection and you can do Packet radio over a wireless 2G network, but it seem like you would need to do some conversion to get the two networkds to talk together.
Do you have a GPRS driver of some sort for the US Robotics Modem to make it 2G compatible

There seems to be some confusion here. Mobile network operators generally do not provide a GPRS <-> public telephone network gateway, Internet connections are provided via GPRS.

You can either use GSM circuit switched data (not GPRS) to a dial-up modem, or a GPRS Internet connection to some other Internet connection, which could be dailup connection.

If you want a circuit switched connection you can use chat and pppd together.
