I know not of any FAQs but this seems to work for me
at the "#" prompt type route del default press return or enter
run the pppd script with a few modifications.
pppd connect ' chat -v -t 40 ""ATDT*70,your local cserve tel# CONNECT "
ame:-BREAK-ame:cis ID:your cserve ID choice:-BREAK-choice:-BREAK-choice:
 /GO:PPpCONNECT ' \
        /dev/modem (or /dev/cua0 or 1 or 2 etc ) modem speed -detach
debug crtscts netmask 255.255.0.0 modem
PPP comes with a sample file that can be modified to reflect the changes
needed.
you will need to include compuserves name servers in your
/etc/resolv.conf file and your /etc/hosts file

Can anyone point me to a simple way to connect to cserve via PPP?
There must be an FAQ somewhere...

 
 
 

1. CServe Dial-Up ISP Problem

Hello.  I was wondering if any one knows how you can set up ppp in Linux
for dialing up CompuServe for internet access.  I've tried reading all
of the howtos and documents but i still *ALWAYS* get the message:
"Cannot look up nameserver" even though i specify the correct nameserver
in the config files.  Can anyone help me here?
