Hi, Rick the newbie here so don't be too harsh, but would like creative
comments, used to do slackware near the beginning, should have carried on
but went the microsoft way, back again with SuSe 6.2 - kernal 2.2.10 -
kde 1.1.1 running on PIII 500, 128Mb,Xrage32,Creative
Live, DVD-dxr2?, Deskjet895cxi. Zoom 34i. (running alongside a Diamond 56K
Winmodem win only) Got most of the above running - Winmodem NOT - DVD NOT.
This is a standalone set up not connected to a network.
Here's a quick setup for IOL that works:
Start kppp (Always a good thing)
Select 'Setup' button
@ Accounts tab select 'New'
@ Dial tab
Connection Name IOL
Phone Number 1891121121
Store password Up to U I checked it
@ IP tab Check Dynamic IP Address radio button
@DNS Domain Name 'Didn't know what to put here? Whose Domain
Name?(Getting slow in old age SPEAK UP I CAN'T HERE) I put
DNS IP Address 220.127.116.11 then press Add button
U may have to disable existing DNS if your on a DNS network.
@Gateway Check default Gateway
Press OK to return to main config dialogue
Modem Device /dev/ttyS3 (This is DOS Com port 4
put yours here!)(/dev/modem will work here with SuSe 6.2)
Flow Control: CRTSCTS
Line Termination CR ***NOTE***(The Login Sript will not
work if left at the standard CR/LF)
Connection Speed 57600
Use Lock File Checked
Modem Timeout 30
Busy wait 3
Modem Volume up to U but I had tochange 'Modem Command' High to M1L3
from M1L4 when I selected High vol
U can do a Query modem to see if kppp is talking to the modem or not.
If it is then press OK then Connect and it will work first time - Yeh?!
If not try pressing terminal and then at&f or at&f1 or at&w0 some of these
might work I'm a bit behind these days :-) and a bit dodery.....
Perhaps someone could clean this up abit, I just hope It dosen't confuse too
many people and helps at least one!
