Description lorna elliott 2000-08-21 12:28:33 UTC
I am using redhat 6.1, trying to config ppp using wvdial, under windows my 
modem port is com2 (Rockwell 56k) so using modemtool I have /dev/ttyS1 > 
At first I got error msg in /var/log/messages   "cannot locate terminal 
parameters: input/output error", so I setserial /dev/ttyS1 port 0x02f8 irq 
4, this error msg no longer appears, however I get modem not responding 
after AT&F init string is sent.

I have upgraded my initscript and ppp-

I hope this is enough info  can anyone help!!

Is your modem a "WinModem" or a modem "for Windows"?  If so, it will not work
under other operating systems unless the manufacturer writes a driver for it.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 2000-08-22 15:38:38 UTC
Normally 0x2f8 (ttyS1) is irq 3 standard and optionally irq 5. irq 4 is reserved
for 0x3f8 (ttyS0) so this will probably not work anyway. If you go into windows
and look at the resources under system manager that com2 is using, what is the
irq it is reporting? Once you know that you should be
able to do

setserial 0x2f8 irq (number from windows) 

and get it to work.
