Talking Cool!

I am glad that you are able to get online (I think you can!). You can atomatically configure the setserial thing at start up in a file that I cant remember where, but I will let you know. I forgot to add to my earlier post about linking the /dev/ttyS15 file to the /dev/modem. You do this by typing
#.ln -sf /dev/ttyS15 /dev/modem

You then use /dev/modem as the device to dial from. If you use a graphical dialer such as kppp, then make sure it is set to use /dev/modem. This may allow you to use the modem in Linux itself. As for the other questions I am still looking them up. Glad you have some success. Unfortunately I can also dial out but pppd dies for some reason! Oh well...

BJC. You have to create the file, then make it executional with the chmod command. Did you make a work area then use the "cd" command to go there? You can make a subdirectory by typing "mkdir [subdirectory]". The [subdirectory] would be the name of the subdirectory you want (not including the brackets).

Now use an editor to create the file called "fixscript". You'll find the contents for the file at: . You can actually copy and pasted the contents for the file into your text editor for assurance in getting each line exact. Then save the file, then make it executional with the "chmod" command you just mentioned.

You can type "ls" to see what's in your area. If you don't see the file, then you haven't created it yet.

You may have to upgrade to the 2.4 kernel to get that modem to work.
No, there are at least three types of controller-based PCI modems. They are somewhat more difficult to set up than a jumpered ISA modem or an external serial port modem. Linux 2.4 will probably include automagic setup of PCI hardware modems.
If you are curious, these modems are:

Lucent Venus chipset: Multitech MT5634ZPX-PCI, Actiontec PCI56012 (IBM 33L4618 or GVC MD0223)
USR/TI Kermit chipset: the 3Com/USR 3CP5610 family, which includes models 5613, 5609, and OEM models 2976, 2977, and 3258,
TOPIC TP560i chipset: Zoom 2920 (Digitan DS550-558) and the Well Communications FM-56PCI-TP (GVC MD0321).
Of course that doesn't mean that someone hasn't got it to work yet.
Does any one out there have one of the modems listed in the above quote working in Linux?
