Re: Internet pon help


/dev/modem does not exist unless you create it. You have a couple of

First, in the /etc/ppp/peers/provider file, you can change /dev/modem to
your real modem device: try /dev/ttyS0 or /dev/ttyS1 ...

Second option, make a symbolic link from /dev/modem to your real modem device. 

# ln -s /dev/modem /dev/ttyS# 

where # is the number of your real modem device.

Then, use adduser to add your normal non-root login to the dip group:

# adduser non-root-user dip

So you don't need to be root to start a ppp session.
