Problems with USR Modem, need help!!!

Post by Cary Prous » Mon, 28 Jun 1999 04:00:00

I've read the manuals, and parused news groups and still I can't seem to
connect to the internet from RHLinux 5.2. My modem is not a win modem...I
believe it isn't anyway. I have a USR 56K DSP-ES-X2 DFV Modem, it's
connected to com 4, irq 9, port 0x2E8. I am VERY new to the unix/Linux world
so if anyone has a answer to my problem please take this into consideration.
Is it better to connect it via ttys3 or cua3 ? Any info would be very much

Please Help

I had to run "setserial" to get my modem configured. Once I had the
syntax right I put in my rc.local to run at startup. It works find.

Im not at my Linux machine or I would give you the command I use. Just
check the man page for setserial that what I did.
