Description MIchael Kolmodin 2002-12-04 11:16:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016 Description of problem: This is a meta bug covering the difficulties to connect a laptop with a USB-connected serial port through a Nokia phone to an ISP Current work-around is a kermit script which connects and then enters transparent mode. This script is fed as pty argument to pppd. Far from elegant, but I havn't found any other solution so far. There are numerous ppp-up. ppp-down, and /sbin/ifup-pre-local scripts involved to get it running. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RH 7.2, kernel update 2.4.18-17.8.7x Dependencies: bug 70200: ifdown-post removes ppp peers' config bug 78958: lcp-echo* options blocks pppd from connecting bug 78961: Wvdial does not handle baud rate recognition? bug 78962: USB serial driver doesn't support DCD/DSR/DTS In short: 78962 is the very root. If the driver supported hardware signals, a normal chat script could be used, no lcp-echo* would be required and no peer configuration would be needed. Even if 78962 is not solved, solving 78961 would make the use of peer configurations obsolete. In this scenario, I can live with 78962 for a while.
Comment 1 MIchael Kolmodin 2002-12-04 11:19:30 UTC
Adding formal dependencies
Comment 2 MIchael Kolmodin 2002-12-05 11:33:28 UTC
Adding 79070 dependency after splitting 79062 into two bugs; this is the new one.
Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-16 16:14:21 UTC
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs. Closing as "not a bug" for now.
