2.4 -> 14.4k modem migration problems

Post by Dhaliwal Bikram Sin » Tue, 11 Jan 1994 08:03:46

First of all, if I connect to the local IBM bulletin board here at
14.4kb in Linux using minicom 1.15b it works ok (8N1 line). However
when I dial the U of T CS computer (7N1 w/MNP) I get nothing but
garbled lines, as if I did not set the 7N1 parameter.  I have done
everything, disabling MNP, etc and it has been unable to connect.
I have been able to connect on the school's 2400 baud line but obviously
I don't want 2400 baud if I can run at 9600.  The reason why
I want to do this is because I want to run term108 (works with my
old 2400 baud modem).  

BTW if anybody has any shell scripts that will dial the modem and
log onto a system without the use of minicom please post them.




1. external USR Sporster 14.4k fax/modem

Anyone have good documentation on this modem?  I can't find anything
regarding the S registers (although I found some for newer models,
but they don't appear to have the same registers).

I'm asking this because I'm having a real tough time getting connected
via PAP, and even though I played with the lcp-* and pap-* settings
of pppd, the end result is the same:  it hangs up after so many
LCP ConfReq are sent (the number depends on what those lcp-* and pap-*
variables are set to).  That's why I'm thinking this may be

The machine I'm trying to get authenticated by is an Ascend router,
and after reading an FAQ about them, I found out that it's a good idea
to set S7 to a high value (it's set to 120 right now), but I have no
info on the other registers.
