I tried to connect to a remote host from Linux box via modem and I
received some information from the host but I don't know what is it.
What should I expect when connecting to a dialup server ? PPP daemon ?
None of that info looks like PPP packets. I would like to know what kind
of information is exchanged between hosts right after detecting the
carrier. It doesn't look like binary data, it is more character -
based info (sometimes it has Login: and Password: strings in it, but
sometimes it's just something like WH48110, 53333/ARQ or UQKT2 and
hostname; sometimes nothing happens, the other side seems to be waiting
for me to initiate the exchange - depending on what dialup number I
use). If anybody could refer me to some info on what kind of protocol is
that, I would be most obliged.
PS. that info is somehow related to PPP setup program (pppcfg?) on Linux
- it also requires username and password. What is that ?
