Description Panic 2001-08-01 19:01:58 EDT
Description of Problem:

The first page of the modem dial-up configuration Asks for a "device name".
 Is this supposed to be /dev/ttyS0?  Modem0 as indicated in the Advanced
tab?  What is Modem0 anyway?  Should it be ppp0?  I named my device
"mindspring", but don't know if that is causing problems or not.  It seems
to be okay, and the wvdial configuration created works okay.

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a Modem type of configuration
2. Try to figure out what "Device Name" means

Actual Results:

Confusion, dillusionment, and pain.

Expected Results:

Oh, something like "Connection Name"?

Additional Information:

A clarification -- this is neat's Add->Modem only, as internet-druid has a
different problem.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-01 19:27:59 EDT
UI issues are being worked on.
