I'm new to using Linux with modems. I've just installed the driver for
my modem from linuxant. I've run into a couple of things that I don't
understand and haven't run across a posted answer with my limited
I use kppp to fire-up my modem and connect to my ISP. When I do this I
receive a message: "Can't activate network device ppp0. Failed to
activate ppp0 with error 6"
I'm running Redhat Linux 9. When I go through the Network Device Control
and the Network Configuration windows, I do have a ppp0 device defined.
However, I can't connect to my ISP using this window. I click the
activate button and the system dials, and I hear the tone, but a
connection is never made. It continues to cycle through this process
until I terminate it.
Can someone enlighten me as to what is going on and how I can correct it?
