some one wanted A dial-up tutorial

  Date: Dec 04    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 421

I hope this is my chance to help someone else. A couple of weeks ago some one
was wanting a tutorial on how to set up dial up on Ubuntu. I ran across this
site by accident this A.M.

That someone may have been me. If not, it should have been. This is what I've
been looking for.

Problem with that link, and virtually every other one like
it on the net is it doesn't work with Ubuntu 9.10. Network
Manager no longer supports dialup and GnomePPP, while the
"recommended" dialer in the Ubuntu User Guide, isn't included
with the distribution.

I would encourage you to post your thoughts on dial up and Ubuntu, as many folks
use dial up in rural areas as either a primary or back up connection to the
Internet. I for one would sure like to know how with Ubuntu!

As I understand it 3g accounts use dial-up to connect to the system,
/meaning they have to dial in/.

The package that is required to do this is PPP. Install it with the
Synaptics package manager, then set up your account information as you
would in doze. I have not used a dial up connection in years but I have
to set-up dial-up to use my 3g modem device, not that hard.

Anyone who requested the dialup steps directly I just now got
around to sending those off.

Since it was specifically solicited, I will send it to the list
as a new message with an updated subject line.
