I'm using WvDial 1.54.0 to dial and start ppp connections to various servers, using ppp-2.4.3-r1. It works to every server except one, however I can dial and connect to that server from another machine using an external modem.
When I connect a phone to this line and listen in, it seems like my modem isn't even trying to connect. wvdail exits with "no carrier". I made the "wait for carrier" longer (ATS7=255) and it just sits there waiting, and eventually the server hangs up. --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.54.0 --> Initializing modem. --> Sending: ATZS7=255 ATZS7=255 OK --> Modem initialized. --> Sending: ATDT0,******** --> Waiting for carrier. ATDT0,******** --> Timed out while dialing. Trying again. --> Sending: ATDT0,******** --> Waiting for carrier. NO CARRIER ATDT0,******** --> No Carrier! Trying again. --> Maximum Attempts Exceeded..Aborting!! --> Disconnecting at Wed Mar 2 09:14:40 2005 This modem works, because I use it (with wvdail and ppp) to connect to other servers, and this particular server works, because a windows xp machine can dial into it. I don't know why this combination isn't working though... It's an internal modem, using slmodemd... Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. -- Iain Buchanan <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> -- email@example.com mailing list
