I have been trying to get my modem to work under Linux for a very long
time now. I've tried several different configurations, and none of them seem
to work. I have my modem set up on COM3 (under DOS), and try testing the
modem by typing:
echo atdt5551212 > /dev/modem
Is what I'm doing an effective method of testing the modem? If not,
what is an effective way? If this is an effective way, what could possibly be
keeping the modem from dialing (it doesn't click, come offline, or anything)?
Any input is greatly appreciated. Responses can be sent via e-mail or
to this group.
