I picked up one of the new ESAT SurfFree CD recently, because lately I have been
having trouble connecting to Ocean. I just keep getting a busy tone. I installed
it on the Windows side of my system and it connected much better than the
OceanFree CD did. Ocean still doesn't work on the windows side without
re-installing each time. It dials the wrong number. The ESAT one work a treat,
from Windows. Has anyone got the details needed to connect to ESAT with Linux? I
also need to know how to change the DNS setting and such depending on which ISP
I select. Actually, I need lots of help getting this internet stuff set up.
Right now I use wvdial, as root to connect, then open Netscape with my regular
login. I haven't even tried setting up E-Mail or News groups yet. I'm still
looking for some kind sole willing to help me set up my systems correctly. I
live near Drogheda, but am willing to bring the PC's somewhere more convenient,
like DCU <Hint, Hint>. The wife and daughter are still waiting for their
personal E-Mail addresses.
