Connecting to the Internet with Linux [Help!]
Posted by FatalDragon [send private reply] at September 02, 2002, 09:39:21 PM Im trying to connect Red Hat 7.0 to the Internet. I'v been using the Red Hat's PPP configuration program. I'm pretty sure I gave it all the correct information. When I click debug, it gives me a message saying "/dev/ttyS0 input output problem" or something like that. When I first started up PPP configuration program it scanned for a modem, and that's what [ttyS0] it found. But when I installed Red Hat it asked where my modem was, and I said ttyS0 because I didnt know where the modem was. Any ideas? How can I find out where my modem is? ThanX!
Posted by FatalDragon [send private reply] at September 02, 2002, 10:28:31 PM Well, I changed the modem to ttyS1 [infact I tried ttyS2, and ttyS3, but got the same results as with ttyS0, so Im thinking that ttyS1 is the modem], and it claims that it's trying to dial, but I still get a error saying modem could not be intialized.

Posted by FatalDragon [send private reply] at September 03, 2002, 06:20:41 PM Nope, it's not the permissions. I think it's because I have a WinModem. It has "Lucent" on the chips, and IBM's tech archive said it has a "K56 Flex" modem. I found some drivers for Lucent modems, but I haven't tried them yet. I'll let you all know the link if they work.
