Sorry, modem busy

Sorry, modem busy

Post by Michael Sec » Thu, 14 Oct 1999 04:00:00



I am running Red Hat 6.0 i386. I set up my ISP account/connection using
Kppp. My modem is on COM2 and /dev/ttyS1. On my first attempt to connect I
had a couple of errors:  "Sorry, can't create modem lock file" and
"/etc/resolv.con is missing".  These last two errors I have fixed by giving
kppp setuid root permissions and creating the /etc/resolv.conf file with the
proper domain name and server address.

Now when I connect I get a "Sorry, modem busy".

Modem is a Boca 56i.

I also tried this command but no go:

setserial /dev/ttyS1 irq 10  My modem is on com2 and the irq is 10.  Still
get the modem busy.

So I tried changing the modem to /dev/ttyS2 at the device tab in kppp and
then setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 10  Still get a modem busy.  Any suggestions?

Hi
I've fiddled around a similar problem during more than a week ... I got
that modem busy msg just after updating to kde 1.1.2 .. finally, that's
Murphy's law, I found a broken com3 /dev/cua3 port .... . This story
makes me biting through many howto's and man pages.

now, first are you sure that irq10 is not used by other devices ?
then , try to chmode -c 666 /dev/ttySx or /dev/cuax
(I've read somewhere that ttySx is for dialing in mode and cuax for
dial-out mode, so it's better to set cuax (x=your port))
If it still not working try this : setserial -a /dev/cuax (information
about all the settings) with a 56k modem run setserial spd_vhi, maybe
change the UART according to your chip ..
That's the way i got working my modem ..
hope it helps
Eugene

Hi Michael,

if you use kppp, the file /etc/ppp/options MUST exist and MUST
be empty (in particular NO lock option).

In addition, you should /dev/ttyS? and not /dev/cua? because
the latter is deprecated due to documentation. It won't be
supported in future Linux versions.

HTH,
Frank.

1. Sorry, modem busy message at KPP

Every time I try to use Kpp, I've got this message:
Sorry, your modem is buzy.
When I check it with the command fuser /dev/modem, it says that is kpp that
uses it!!!!When kpp isn't running, I got no answer to  fuser.
What to do?
PS I believe that I may have an IRQ conflict... My sound got some kind of
"echos" and at start of Linux, a line says T've got a conflict on Irq 5.
That's onr of my soundcard Irq. How to solve it??
