I'm new in Linux RedHat6.2, I can't setu

By richard911a ·
Linux could't find my modem(V.Everything Courier 33,600 internal), but "minicom" can dial by use this modem.
I was trying connected to my ISP manually (I used pppd and chat command) and all failed.
I used follow :
#pppd connect 'chat -v "" ATDT1234567 ogin: username ssword: password' /dev/cua2 57600

but after connect to ISP I don't get response for "login" and "password".
Why?
I used ISP "Metconnect"(www.metconnect.com)
May be this ISP not supporting this method to access.
Any Idiasplease help me.

You can check your ISP access method by minicom, run it, then type ATDT...
after CONNECT look at prompt string.
Because some ISP using software prints "Username:" or "User:" instead "login:".
Also may be need delay before typing username and password, in this case you must use "\dusername" and "\dpassword".

I think your problem is a hardware incompatability issue. Winmodems (AKA US Robotics internal modems) are not designed to work on any other OS other than Windows. I would recomend an external modem to minimize conflicts.

In RAS PPP software there's such thing as auth method. The commonly used are CHAP & PAP. If you use method that's different from your provider's, you wouldn't be authenticated.
