automatizing a modem installation...

Let's see...

you can probably at least figure out which port your modem is using
(ttyS?)... and then check the char-major/minor values.

For example... I have a HSP56 Micromodem (PCTel) on my computer... which
ends up using ttyS15.

ls -l /dev/ttyS15 looks like

crw-rw---- 62   79

(or something close)

62 is the char-major number... and 79 is the minor number

In /etc/conf.modules... I have:

alias char-major-62    pctel

(pctel is the module/driver for the modem).


make sure you did a 'depmod -a' to make your 'modules.dep' current.

If the driver needs to load other modules, etc... it might be easier to just
add a script to run '/sbin/modprobe blah' in a particular runlevel instead
of wrestling with /etc/conf.modules for loading several modules.

1. Looking for a script to automatize FTPs...

I'm looking 4 a script that allows me to dl any data
without my intervention...

( sleep 6
   echo "user"
   sleep 6
   echo "password"
   sleep 10
   echo "bin"
   sleep 5
   echo "mget *"
   sleep 3600
   echo "quit"
) | ftp ftpsite

Ne ideas?
When i run this script... it seems that the 'echo' command sends
extra cr &/or nl... so the script gets desynched...
Ne ideas?
ijust want to log in through ftp, dl and exit
