Dial-up connection

Hi to all,I am having ubuntu in my laptop.for DNS configuration i checked with 'dmesg'.And i checked in /etc/network/interfaces.Both were worked and i found ip address as i doubted that this ip address is what was provided in my college broadband connection while i use it in college.It is stored as it is.Now my problem is i am unable to connect dialup connection which is at my home.Can any one say how to configure it.Please help.

There are two dial programs that can be used. They are called kppp or wvdial. Either one makes it a lot easier to set up your modem, just fill in the blanks.
