Problems with Dial-up on Old World Mac
I have a Power Macintosh 7500 running Debian Sarge. I have a US
Robotics 56.6K modem.
When I try to dial up, Debian gets the modem to dial, and the modem
negotiates a connection, but then the remote computer can't hear
anything Debian says, and Debian can't hear anything the remote
computer says. I have tested with KPPP and C-Kermit, and on two
different PAP authenticating ISPs and on two BBS - same thing.
Using the same computer and modem with Mac OS 8.6, I am able to log
into both the ISPs and the BBSs. Thus, I don't believe the problem is
On a possibly related note, I am unable to detect an Apple
Laserwriter 4/600 PS I have hooked up via ethernet, an ethernet
switch, and an AsanteTalk ethertalk-to-localtalk bridge. Again, it
prints just fine from the same computer running Mac OS 8.6 and from
an iBook G3 running OS 10.4.8 hooked up the the ethernet switch.
Thus, I don't believe the problem is the AsanteTalk bridge.
It almost appears that Debian just doesn't want to talk over the
localnet wires - but I'm not using localtalk! It doesn't make sense
Does anyone have any experience with a problem similar to this?
Thanks in advance,
