Dial up in Ubuntu 7.10 – Gutsy Gibbon

WOW ! ! Dial up is working in linux FOR me ! Well this might not be news for many , but yeah its a big one for me ! Without this i had been disconnected for more than one semester hols .
What did i do for making the dial-up work ??
Simple – Installed Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon ran wvdial – the gnome PPP dialer! it worked just out of the box ! All i had to know was to do was to add
my user name and password for the dial up connection ! sweet isn’t it ??
1. sudo wvdialconf
this generated a wvdial configuration file for connecting to net using ur modem

2. sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
change the username, password and dial up number in that file of my ISP .2.png
3. sudo wvdial
it throws a lot of garbage and then finally obtains few DNS & IP addresses!

Then u can use firefox or any other application to connect to net ! thats all 🙂

Now after this , i also installed a gnome application called PPP dialer , which is a GUI for wvdial.

Just a day has passed since i came back home . Already two big things happened ! Hope hols have lots more for me 😛

PS : the other thing is OGRE, which will be in another blog 🙂
