Trying to get a PPP net connection up under Linux, over a Nokia phone.Details:
Nokia 6190 phone.
Datasuite cable phone --> serial cable
Datasuite software is useless (Win95 only... not NT/2000)gnokii
lets me setup a /dev/gnokii which I can treat as a modem. This works. I can call the UW modem pool and stuff.
Now.... how do I setup all that /etc/ppp/* crap so I authenticate? In /var/log/messages I see a connection come up for a half second, then die. I assume my authentication is failing, but I don't know why.
Also, once it's up, then what? How do I get an IP address? How is that negotiated? I know nothing about PPP. Do I get a /dev/ppp0 or something?Prize
I'll paypal the winner $5, or take you out to Subway if you're either in Seattle, or between here and Ohio.
I'd figure this out myself, but I'm so sick of dealing with the laptop, and I just want everything to work.
I bought Microsoft Streets 2001 today ... very neat program. Cheap, too. $10 after rebate.
Tired... only 4.5 hours of sleep last night, but I've been active all day. It's totally time to crash. I just hope I can sleep without itchy pseudo-sunburn keeping me up.( Collapse )
