Re: DSelect and ftp
> I found some additional information about the cable modem:
Ah, you have a cable modem... and if it's not really Hayes-compatible,
you'll probably need to adjust the "chat script" that pon is using (most
likely in /etc/chatscripts/ ).
Once you get PPP up and running, that should solve the dselect problem.
As for the connection from minicom, minicom doesn't set it up as a network.
I think there *is* a way to hand it over from minicom to ppp, but I'm not
sure how, because I've never tried it. I assume one would quit out of
minicom using the `do not hang up' option, log in as root, and then do
"pppd /dev/ttyS0" (or ttyS1). Somebody else actually tried it?
We'll know the future has arrived when every mailer transparently
quotes lines that begin with "From ", but no-one remembers why.
