Hey there<br />
I was wondering wether there is a Linux distro that supports dial up, without having to further configure it or add anything ...<br />
What I want is an out of the box already setup Dial up connection tool already integrated in it ...<br />
Thanks for any info !

well [i think *buntu will work ] but i have not had to use dialup in a while - go debian if you can handle the console for a little while [installing packageas]<br />
<br />
let me know if you do - i found some neet stuff to work with

I will try debian then, once I get the luck to ask one of my friends to download it for me... I've dial up <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
Well apparently Ubuntu does work but I just have no idea how to configure it ! I've been looking on the ubuntu forum but no fruits from that...<br />
If anyone could help me out on that it would be awesome !

AFAIK, unless the modem has native support, it will most likely never work under Linux. Sorry.

Last time I tried to install my dial-up modem in Ubuntu I just used one of the phone numbers my AOL browser uses and surprisingly it worked, but it would constantly drop connections.

ok first off if you use a softmodem, or a winmodem forget about it, unless you wanna pay for it, the only linux os that supported these was suse 9.1 and 9.2(correct me if im wrong) if you have a controler based modem or serial all you need to do is a little configuring(on most major distros) and hopfully you shuld be good to go but on this suject i feel ya man im setting here with all winmodems..so no internet on linux unless i use a crossover cable to my linux box and use Internet Connection sharing

I wouldn't guess that any linux distros would support dial up, they are too godly for that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

<div style="font-style:italic;">They don't have high-speed internet in one of the largest cities in the world?<br><br>
Time for an upgrade?</div>

Yea they do have "high-speed" here, it's 3 Million Rupiahs per month (=300US$)...<br>
Or else we have some other cheap connection with cable but the network is "sparse" and I don't have it here...<br>
Well anyway thanks a lot for all the thought and I think I'll go with "Internet Sharing", I'll see what I can do and I will report back !
