Ben's 3 Steps to EZ-PPP under Debian:
1) edit /etc/ppp.chatscript. Fill in blanks.
2) edit /etc/resolv.conf. Make sure there's a line:
(replace 188.8.131.52 with your ISP's nameserver's IP addy)
chmod 644 /etc/resolv.conf to be sure everyone can read it
3) ln -s /dev/ttySX /dev/modem
Replace X with the address of your modem. This number is 1 less
than the COM port under DOS. (i.e. COM1 => /dev/ttyS0, COM2 =>
/dev/ttyS1, et cetera)
Then just run 'pon' to dial up, and 'poff' to turn off and hang up.
'plog' will show you exactly what your modem's doing.
Brought to you by the letters N and C and the number 13.
