    external modem

    I also use an external modem.What is your device set to (/dev/modem probaly wont work).I have to change mine to /dev/ttyS0.You can try some differiant ones in the kppp program or do like me and use wvdial.Here is a sample wvdial.conf file :

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Modem = /dev/ttyS0
    Baud = 57600
    Init = ATZ
    Init2 = AT s11=50
    Phone = 123-4567
    Username = tech2k
    Password = youwish

    I just write that file as root and save it as "wvdial.conf" in /etc and then as a normal used type wvdial in an xterm and it connects much faster than kppp.
