Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 68443
redhat-config-network can't detect by USR 56K modem
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Description of problem:
redhat-config-network (or internet-druid if you will) isn't able to detect my
external USRobotics 56K faxmodem. A very standard model, as you know. It's
connected to ttyS0 and I can see the lights flashing while the program is
looking for modems. But then it returns saying it was unable to find one. (If I
later choose /dev/ttyS0 manually everything works fine.)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect an external modem to ttyS0 (in my case a USR 56K faxmodem)
2. Use redhat-config-network
3. Add a dial-up connection

Btw, what is the preferred dialer in Limbo? rp3 seems to be gone and when I try
to "activate" the ppp0 connection in redhat-config-network nothing happens. I
installed kppp and that worked, though.

Shows up fine in redhat-config-network-1.1.8-1
I just tried (null) - still the same problem. And this has status CLOSED. Hmm...
