I am running a standard RedHat 7.1 distro on a Sony Vaio (PCG-F360
model), and I am trying to get a Xircom CEM56-100 dual purpose
lan/modem pcmcia card to work.
After mucking about with KPPP, I opened the terminal (KPPP's internal
one ) to /dev/ttyS3/ to watch what was going on. Unless I kept my
finger pressed on the <ENTER> key, the data would not be written to
the terminal. Once I kept my finger pressed on ENTER, the data being
written to the terminal made sense.
Has anyone out there gotten one of these modems to work? Again, I
reiterate that I have all of the required kernel modules and serial
drivers. I can communicate with the modem, but the modem doesn't make
any sense! :)
