Modem on Red Hat 7

By Spring ·
I am not sure if I can install an Aopen pci modem under Linux, I have heard that a win modem can't be installed under linux. Is there any alternative to this. Thanks.

You didn't give too many details, but generally, there should be no real problem. You'll need to do a bit of work, but the place to start is

www.linmodems.org

or

http://www.idir.net/~gromitkc/winmodem.html

Both of which should have both general details on how to get winmodems working, as well as possibly specifics on your particular modem. Either way, it can be done, don't worry.

Not to be a zealot, but realistically, anything Windows can do Linux can do better, faster, and cheaper.

Kev.

If you didn't buy a modem yet, the best thing to do is to get an external one. Otherwise, the site mentioned in Answer #1 gives details of supported win-modems under Linux. From what I recall, Lucent had drivers for Linux for one of their PCI models.
Hope this helps.

Linux support soft (win) modems, also not all chipsets. You need searching for on Internet in order to found out there is driver for your pci modem.

As a rule, I generally don't install internal modems on unix/linux systems. If the modem hangs on you for any reason, you will have to reboot the server. In a production environment that is not going to happen. With an external one you can resetthe power on it.
