Re: Modem connection transfer rate

Sorry, I don't remember, exactly (it was on my old RedHat system, before I
wiped and went to Debian)

something like:

then you had to add something to the script that calls chat, so the
reports get written to some file (why I said RTFM, because I don't know).

Basically, wmppp.app checks the file that those reports get sent to for
the modem line like:
to detetrmine what your connect speed is.  If you can figure out where
wmppp looks for it, and can set up the chat script (and PPP script that
calls it) to write reports to that file, all will be good.
