Minicom problem


Hello to everybody,
yesterday I tried to connect to the Internet using minicom. I have a hsf modem by conexant (I know it is a win-modem but I didn't buy it myself). After I installed the drivers and configured the modem I set up minicom and tried to dial. the modem is working OK, it dials but when I enter the username and passwd it hangs up and minicom gives me the message "NO CARRIER".

Does anybody know what is going on??

Thank you in advance.

Minicom can be used to test the modem operation with an internet ISP and that you have done. But most ISP's require PAP type authentication and that you cannot do with minicom. Minicom should work for an old style BBS type system.

Try to set up ppp to handle the internet connection on the modem. You might want to review the /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs/ISP-Hookup-HOWTO for starting information.

You can get minicom to work with PAP/CHAP....what you have to do is make a file called chap-secrets or pap secrets with your username and pass info and place it in your /etc/ppp folder. Then after minicom connects you exit without hanging up and fire up pppd and pppd will take over from there.

Its much easier just to run pppsetup and have that make the scripts, only thing with that is i can't get it to show me the connect speed which minicom will do.

The eaisiest would be to just use kppp.
