That way you can use the FreeBSD command 'ppp', just like you could with a
modem. This is very quick and simple, and 100% effective I've found.
The advantage ISDN4BSD would bring is call logging, cost logging, monitoring
ISDN status, etc.
If your TA can do normal serial, I would recommend ppp - otherwise, try

Brian Somers made these conf files and they're pretty usable out of the
box, the only possible issue is << ERROR: idletime+earlyhup >
unitlength >> that needs few adjustments in isdnd.rc.
Last you need at least FBSD3.4R to make a internal passive TA work with
Search in isdn mailing list archive about Winbond chipset support.
Hope it helps, Regards.

Hello Linux gurus, I am a brand-new Linux user trying to establish a
connection with my ISP.
I am using Slackware 3.4 with PPP version 2.2.0 installed and a U.S.
Robotics Sportster 28.8
Using the How-to documents, I have managed to get my modem installed,
and I can dial-up
my ISP using minicom. I can establish a connection with the ISP, and I
receive a prompt for
my username and password. After entering these I receive the message:
PPP session from (220.127.116.11) to 18.104.22.168
At this point I cannot issue any commands to minicom other than to exit
without resetting the
modem. I do this but I am not able to figure out how to access any
internet commands such as
ping or ftp to test the connection. The ppp how to suggested to use the
command ifconfig to
view the ppp status but I am not able to issue this command either. One
more problem, about
30 seconds after the 'PPP beginning' message, I am disconnected ( I can
hear the modem click
So my questions are: 1. Why am I disonnected? 2. How do I gain access
to ping, ftp etc.?
Thank you in advance,
