I just installed FreeBSD 4.7 on my HP OmniBook 4150 laptop and everything runs well. I have an external modem that I connect to the COM1 port (/dev/cuaa0) and I'm able to phone to my ISP without a problem.
This laptop came with a pc-card modem that I'd like to get working, so that I don't have to drag around the external. It's a Xircom RealPort Ethernet 10/100+Modem 56 As near as I can tell, the system supports and recognizes this card (I get beeps and useful looking messages whenever I insert or remove it). However, It's not clear to me what device it's associated with. I'm thinking that If I knew the device, all I would have to do is change the line set device /dev/cuaa0 in my ppp.conf file to reflect the pc-card device and everything would work. Is there more to it than this? All the literature I've been able to find on PPP just talks about serial communications. I have no experience with pcmcia devices. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Mike To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
