I have tried everything i can think of to get my chat script to dial the
modem for me. I want to use chat as a front end for the ppp daemon. I know
that ppp is installed in the kernel because of the messages at startup.
The question is about chat. I know that my modem is working because when i
enter the command =>echo ATZ > /dev/modem the modem restes itself (you can
hear it). However when I try to use chat with the script:
ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' '' ATZ OK ATDT1234567 CONNECT
nothing happens. The first string ATZ flashes up on the screen, but does
not seem to get sent to the modem. Chat times out and gives up, not having
received the expected return string.
I get the serial configuration done from rc.serial (which gets called from
my rc.M file) at startup. I am running the Slackware 96 Distribution Kernel
Does anyone have any idea what the hell is the matter??
I appreciate any and all help.
