/etc/ppp settings for Earthlink
I am trying to setup an old box with a Zoom 2920 pci hardware modem.
It is going into an airplane hanger that only has a phone line.
My dmesg finds the modem and assigns it com3
I looked at the OpenBSD networking FAQ and am putting most of my effort in ppp rather than pppd.
I'm trying to make this easy for others to use so I installed current xfce4 with xfce4-modemlights
I know that dialup modems are nearly extinct but there is no other way to connect.
I tried the guide here but it used pppd and I get the sense it is dated
and pppd is not the preferred method now days.http://openbsd-wiki.org/index.php?title=Dialup_PPP
Also tried this Absolute OpenBSD link on setting up modems (needs flash plugin to view)
I recall that earthlink required PAP/CHAP and previously had to set the DNS name servers manually.
Anyone using earthlink dialup in openbsd can share their basic ppp setup?
