Mint 19.02 Dial up procedures with Kppp

ray burke
Dontas 20/4/2020,

NBN stands for National Broadband Network for Australia run by Telstra.
When I start KPPP it shows the logon page and when I do connect it fails to find
the 56 external modem for dial up, and I am not sure where and how I find it
to see that it is connecting?

Ray
PS what command do I use to locate the port number my external
modem connected to?

Re: Mint 19.02 Dial up procedures with Kppp

Donatas G.
I doubt that a list like this will help you deal with hardware issues - if
kppp does not find a modem and you are not sure where it is/if it is connected,
perhaps you need to find someone tech-savvy in the vicinity to help you out...

Just in case it is a software/configuration issue: you could also try the
default connection to network method in Mint (I suspect there should be some
applet of Network Manager in the system tray). Kppp, after all, is no longer
maintained, so you might have more luck with other tools.

But first of all, have you got the connection parameters that you need to set
in kppp or another program from your network provider? Is it a mobile
broadband, or plain old dialup (such went extinct in Lithuania about 15 years
ago) that we are talking about?

Sincerely

Donatas G.

Re: Mint 19.02 Dial up procedures with Kppp

ray burke
Dontas 21/4/2020,

Sorry my mistake. To run my 2.5 inch sata 129gb
Mint 19.02 which is inside a portable extrenal
USB HDD. I connect to the USB port on my Desktop,
then boot up and when Ist page shows press the PF12
key to select the boot menu sequence and boot from
the USB-HDD, thus boots up from my external HDD(mint
19.02). Once booted up Mint 19.02 I notice that even
though thru synaptic program I installed Kppp app,
but this does not show thru the M-menu panel and there
for can only be started thru the terminal as "sudo kppp"
I dont know where the Kppp icon has gone should I try
and re-install it.

Also when I ran Gnome PPP icon(red telephone) it comes
up but thru the configuration screen can't find the
modem address as not sure of this-
eg.
/dev/modem
/dev/ttys0 to s4
/dev/noz0 to 3
/dev/usb/tty/ACM0 to 3
/dev/usb/tty/usb0 to 3
/dev/tty/ACM0 to 3
/dev/tty/usb0 to 3
/dev/usb/HSI0 to 3
/dev/rfccomm0 to 3
/dev/ircomm0 to 3
/dev/ttySL0 to 3
/dev/ttySHSF0 to 3

What do think?

Ray

Dontas 21/4/2020,

Sorry my mistake. To run my 2.5 inch sata 129gb
Mint 19.02 which is inside a portable external
USB HDD. I connect to the USB port on my Desktop,
then boot up and when 1st page shows press the PF12
key to select the boot menu sequence and boot from

19.02). Once booted up Mint 19.02 I notice that even
though thru synaptic program I installed Kppp app,
but this does not show thru the M-menu panel and there
for can only be started thru the terminal as "sudo kppp"
I dont know where the Kppp icon has gone should I try
and re-install it.

Also when I ran Gnome PPP icon(red telephone) it comes
up but thru the configuration screen can't find the
modem address as not sure of this-
eg.
/dev/modem
/dev/ttys0 to s4
/dev/noz0 to 3

/dev/tty/ACM0 to 3
/dev/tty/usb0 to 3
/dev/usb/HSI0 to 3
/dev/rfccomm0 to 3
/dev/ircomm0 to 3
/dev/ttySL0 to 3
/dev/ttySHSF0 to 3

What do think?

Ray
PS I have since found out it to be /dev/ttys1, and now says no permissions,
so denied?
