Ubuntu Networking :: Control Dial Up Modem (start And Stop)?

Feb 22, 2010

After much work finding the bits and bobs to get my PCI controller based modem working in Ubuntu 9.10, I need a better way to start and stop it. Now it dials up when I reboot whether I want to be online or not. I can stop this, but it won't dial up again without a reboot.

I would love a way to push a button to get it to connect and disconnect, and blinking lights (like the green computer screens in WinXP) to tell me when I am communicating. Even better would be a way to set up multiple connections, again like in XP so I could use a variety of numbers and/or user names depending on where I am.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Use USB Dial-up Modem?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm using an external Huawei CDMA fixed wireless terminal (phone + dial-up modem). It connects to my PC via a USB port. Actually my PC recognizes it (after driver installation) as "TIUMP Serial Port". I guess the driver is a kind of USB adapter for a serial port.

I can't get it to work in ubuntu 9.10. I ran wvdial (after installing dependencies and wvdial package) and it doesn't recognize my device as a modem. Is there any solution to this problem? Without solving it, I won't be able to go online from ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dial Up Modem Is Not Detected

Jan 1, 2010

I use ubuntu 9.10 and PCI connected Conexant CX11252 Modem. My GNOME PPP doesn't detects my modem. How can I create a connection? Is there any way to detect my modem and connect ? or ubuntu is fit only for broadband? I think most of the activities in ubuntu depends on internet. I can't do any work. I am losing my money in Internet Cafe. Broadband is even not available in my resident area. Therefore. find a solution to connect internet via my dial up modem!

Ubuntu Networking :: Dial Up Modem - Cannot Connect

Apr 20, 2011

I have been working for the last week trying to connect my serial hardware external modem (courier 56K v.everything) within an Ubuntu 10.4 environment. I live in the boonies where I am presently forced to use dial up, so this has got to work, else I cannot update Ubuntu or download software. After trying various suggestions, which my very limited Linux skills fail me, I opted for the suggestion that I download gnome-ppp, install and then use it. Seeing how I cannot download it through Synaptic Package Manager (which I was advised to but can't as it is my Linux computer that I am trying to connect).

I downloaded the zipped file (gnome-ppp_0.3.23_Oubuntu2.tar.gz ) to a USB stick, copied it to the home directory and then extracted it, wherein a new directory was created with many files in it. From here I have been unable to install it through the command line (not sure how), nor have I been able, as was suggested, to install it via the Synaptic Package Manager (can't get it to see the file, not sure how to). I need explicit (Newbie) instructions on how either to connect the modem without gnome-ppp, or instructions on how to get gnome-ppp installed.

Ubuntu Networking :: USR Dial Up Modem NOT Working On 9.10 (wubi)

Jan 8, 2010

I just can't seem to get this thing going. I've also tried Gnome-ppp. Press detect and it says "no modem installed" I did install it in Windows as well to make sure the darn thing actually works. It did perfectly.

Your US Robotics modem attached at /dev/ttyACM0 >>> The problemt: wvdial for some reason cannot use it

I had to edit the /etc/wvdial.conf file with gksudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf

john@ubuntu:~$ sudo wvdial
[sudo] password for john:
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Cannot get information for serial port

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect Adsl Modem / Cannot Create Dial-up Option Where Can Give Username And Password?

Apr 9, 2010

I use an atom based processor of 1.60 ghz on intel d945gclf board. My ram is a zion 1gb @ 533mhz. Hdd is from western digital 80gb @ 7200 rpm. I have a broadband(dsl) connection from bsnl dataone (a state owned telecom service provider). I connect to internet via a huawei wa1003a ethernet/usb/wireless modem which is provided by my service provider. I need a username and a password everytime i connect to internet via dial-up.

I was using windows xp service pack ii. It was nice and easy installing my modem on xp either via usb or ethernet. Both ways it was easy as i have both the drivers with me.Only and main problem was fighting viruses. I tried many free downloadable anti-virus software to protect my maching. Initially they were fine. But after few months they stopped taking regular updates and became non-functional. I also tried symantec corporate v.10. But it has its drawbacks also. It made my machine perform like a snail.I had previously heard about linux based operating systems. But never tried one. As i am an ameteur in using computers windows xp was suiting my needs. Recently i saw an article in the newspaper about ubuntu which is a free open source operating system. And most important to me it is virus free.But here is a problem also. I cannot connect to internet. My ubuntu 9.10 karmic koala is not identifying my modem and a network between my modem and my machine cannot be established. Also i cannot create a dial-up option where i can give username and password.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 AMD64 Usb Dial-up Modem That Work With A 64?

Apr 27, 2010

One of my clients brought a laptop to me with a 64 bit processor and wanted to hook up his zoom 3095 usb dial-up (56k) modem to a his laptop using ubuntu 9.10 AMD 64 bit version. We quickly found out that zoom has only made 32 bit drivers for linux. So...I need to find a usb modem that has drivers that will work with a 64 bit version of ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Programs For 64-bit Dial-up Modem (wvdial)?

Mar 13, 2011

I have only a dial-up connection. I've been using the 32-bit version of WVDIAL and its associated programs in Karmic Koala for over a year. I recently finally got around to installing Maverick Meerkat on a different drive. The 64-bit version. I see that I need the 64-bit version of the modem software, and I haven't found it right away. Where can I get it? The programs required under 32-bit Karmic Koala:


All of these had .deb filename extensions. Also, largely because I only have a slow dial-up connection, I don't have any updates for either Karmic Koala or Maverick Meerkat installed. If you happen to know that I absolutely need some particular update(s)

General :: Best Ubuntu Version # For External Dial-up Modem?

May 12, 2010

After >15-yrs using MSWindows, I'm getting a new PC with Ubuntu as my OS. This is for typical home use--net access, web browsing+email, office suite apps.


I've read and bookmarked various info on configuring modem, including PPP and wvdial info. But one question: Is there a particular version # of Ubuntu best for external dial-up modem use? I have the CD for 9.10 Desktop edition. It seems that different Ubuntu versions include some things, others not. Another Q: Reading this page about wvdial, it refers only to serial modems. Does the info apply to USB modems, like the USRobotics 5637? [URL]

OpenSUSE Network :: Set Up / Recognize Usb Dial-up Modem

Jun 12, 2010

I have an external usb dial up modem. lsusb shows: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2001:f10d D-Link Corp. [hex] Accent Communications Modem How do I set this up? It probably needs a driver, how do I check it, or better yet, can I get yast to tell me if it recognizes the modem or needs firmware? I know linux and dial up is like the seventh circle of hell. Just wondering if there was a snowball's chances of getting this working. Sorry if this is the wrong section to ask in. Seemed like as good as any when I checked.

OpenSUSE Network :: Set Up Dial Up Modem Using Yast

Jun 28, 2010

I have a US Robotics serial modem, and I have smpppd enabled in system services, with wvdial and kppp installed. When I try to set the modem up using yast, I keep getting hung up by the different screens. First a screen that asks if I need to dial a number to get out. I have to dial 9, so I have that entered. Then a screen that asks for "country" and "provider."

When I try to enter anything, nothing shows in the boxes, so I go to a screen that asks for the phone number, provider, user name and password. When I enter those, it goes to a screen that wants "Connection Parameters", with default settings and the "buttons" at the bottom of the screen "muted," or flattened out, i.e. unusable. That makes it impossible for me to set the information as saved, so it's back to the beginning and sart over, with the same results over and over. How do I get the modem so it dials out?

Ubuntu Servers :: Produce Dial Tone From Modem With Mgetty?

Oct 24, 2010

I'm trying to produce a dial-tone from my modem with Mgetty. I found this online: I recently discovered a feature that's part of the command set of some voice modems that enables it to produce tones. The latter is of interest to us since the US dial-tone and others are a combination of two frequencies (440Hz and 350Hz in the US). Below is an ordered list of AT commands that initialize the modem, produce a dialtone for 2.5 seconds and answers the call. To check if the "AT+VTS" command is supported, or to get the parameter value ranges supported by it, use "AT+VTS=?"

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Get USR5637 Dial-up Modem Working?

Feb 17, 2011

It's been a while since I've logged into this forum, but I'm back to using openSUSE, and my experience with this OS has so far been quite pleasant. I have a U.S. Robotics Dial-up modem, model USR5637, that I've used with other linux OS's, such as Ubuntu, Fedora, and Puppy, but I haven't had any luck using this modem with openSUSE. This is a full hardware modem.

Usually, when using this modem on a new Ubuntu system, I got into the terminal, type "lsmod" and then "modprobe cdc_acm" and the modem begins to work. However, in openSUSE this is not the case. I'm using Gnome and KDE, with kppp, and I'm unable to connect to the internet. Is there a way of installing this modem that I am overlooking?

Networking :: How To Stop / Start Network In Ubuntu 10.04

Jul 18, 2010

This should not be this difficult. I have a plain install of Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit with a wired network card. It picks up a private IP address from my router. It has an app called NetworkManager Applet 0.8 in the notification area of the panel. If I right click on this app and select "Disconnect" it does. ifconfig shows that the IP address is gone. I can then right click on the app again and "Auto eht0 and I am connected again and ifconfig shows the IP address restored. So far, so good. I was testing a crossover cable to see how fast I could transfer files to/from my server - both machines have gigabit cards but my switch is only 100 Mb.

I unplugged the PC from the router, hooked up the crossover cable to the server and found that I had no connectivity - the IP address was gone. Not wanting to mess with hard configuring IP addresses for the moment I connected the PC back to the router. When I unplugged the cable the app showed the networking disconnected icon. I tried right clicking on the app and unchecking [ ] Enable Networking then rechecking it. This works on my netbook running Ubuntu 9.04. No luck on 10.04 (and I had not tried the Auto eht0 as described above - did not discover that until later). So then I tried to fix it from the command line.

ken@taylor12:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking start
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service networking start

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, you may also use the start(8) utility, e.g.
start networking
networking stop/waiting.

So I then tried
ken@taylor12:~$ sudo service networking start
networking stop/waiting
but still no connectivity. A reboot got things back in order.

Then I did a little more testing.
ken@taylor12:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking stop
* Deconfiguring network interfaces...
Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.
and I am still connected.

Editing Connections within the NetworkManager Applet shows "Auto eth0 - last used never" even though I have used it. [Edit] Auto eth0 via the app appears to show information about my wired NIC.

ifconfig shows eht0 as active
ken@taylor12:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:64:e8:18:2c

Security :: Ways To Monitorize And Control/stop Flooding On My Server

Sep 1, 2010

I want to know what are the ways to monitorize and control/stop flooding on my server, because I am heavily flooded. At this moment I am doing all this manually (when I see that my bandwidth is lowering or some applications are freezing), my main working tool being iptables.But I want something automated .

Another problem : if I am flooded with packets having real ip addresses , with a simple iptables command I cand resolve the problem easily. But, the problem is, in most of the cases, I am flooded with packets with spoofed ip adresses (e.g. ), so the only thing I can do in this situation is to block all incoming packets (which ruins everything).Do you have a solution to this ? The flood monitorizing (and controlling) tool may be with/without interface, only to be effective.
