Having problems connecting

Post by mike » Fri, 12 Dec 1997 04:00:00



Well I'm trying to connect to my ISP (yes another one of these).

I'm in Minicom and I type in atdt ###-##### and I can hear it connect but I
always get this response back     moomo?--?====
That's all I get, nothing else.  I tried to connect to another one of my
ISPs and I get the same thing.  I'm using an internal modem and I have got
this to work before. I have the symbolic link to /dev/modem and I have
changed the stop bits and parity with no luck. I'm using Slak 3.4.

Please help

Thank You,
shannon

This looks like your modem is not "talking" to the modem on the other
end.  The most likely cause is an improper init string.  Make sure
that the init string minicom is using is correct for your modem.  A
single wrong item in your init string can cause your modem to stop
working.

After you connect, try sending a "break" signal -- this should not be
necessary, but sometimes it works.

Hello Mike

I'd bet your ISP starts PPP right after connection between modems has
established and wants you to authenticate yourself using some
authentication protocol like PAP or CHAP. Most likely it is PAP due
the wintendo95 does it by default.

I've described my way to handle PAP with Linux in my homepage links,
maybe it is not best, but it works for me.

1. Having problem connecting terminal

Hi all,
I can't seem to get a login prompt on my terminal connected to my PC.
I'm running SLS 1.03  0.99 pl 12.  The version of getty with that appears
to be 2.0.4 (?).  I also have 2.0.7 (?) which I believe is one of the
latest good versions.

I've set up /etc/gettydefs, /etc/inittab, /etc/default/getty.ttyS1 using
what examples I can get.  Are there additional files that need to be setup?

Sorry, my PC is at home and I don't have real examples, but I've tried
everything I can from all that I've read.

I've looked on sunsite and rtfm (tsx-11 wasn't responding) for HOWTO's
on serial stuff.  Apparently those are under development.  Does anyone
have an early release they can send me?

I can use kermit to talk back and forth with the terminal (actually an
old pc connected with a null modem) on /dev/cua1.

Getty seems to be respawning alot, and I do have CLOCAL in the gettydefs
entry.  I've tried both versions of getty and uugetty.

For kicks I tried running getty from a console command line like:
/bin/getty 9600 /dev/ttyS1
and it kicks me out of my current login and prompts me to log in.

In inittab I have something like:
S1:6:respawn:/bin/getty 9600 /dev/ttyS1

Sorry I don't have hard examples, but where can I get info?  Can someone
who has a terminal connected send me their related files?

Thanks,
