I had a lot of problem with Modems and PPP on Solaris x86.
Eventually after many hours I found out that Sun offers Solstice PPP (Client
only at no charge.. except that I had to purchase the CD for $50.00 (Better this
than spending 24 Hours trying to setup asppp IMHO)) .
Be forewarned that after I got the PPP Tool working , I had to modify the Login
Script.. Then I could only connect if I I setup debugging info with PPPTool -9
Anyway if I appear to be complaining , I am. Since trying to setup a dial
connection is really a big hassle even with the Solstice PPP. This is one of
those thing that any OS maker should take into account and make as easy as
Currently I an using cable modem and I dread going back to modem Communications
, is it is such a hassle with Solaris and OS2.. That is one of the major reason
I stopped using OS2.
