Peoplenet on Ubuntu Linux
I've got CCU-550(3G/UMTS) modem.
I've never installed modems on Linux before so I just hoped that newest distros have right tools to do that.
I wanted to start using it quickly therefore began with NetworkManager's PointToPoint connection option. But it didn't want to work...
Then I looked at pppd stcripts. But it didn't work for me either...
At that point I didn't have internet access so the only option i could progress with was reading man pages for wvdial.
Interesting what man page says about
wvdial - PPP dialer with built-in intelligence.
And it turned out to be true :)
So i launched
$man 5 wvdial.conf
copied sample configuration to
/etc/wvdial.confand modified to look like:
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Baud = 460800
Init = ATZ
Phone = #777
Username = email@example.com
Password = 111111
To get the proper Modem location i did:
$dmesg |grep tty
[ 164.384650] cdc_acm 2-1:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device
I got it working:
$ ifconfig |\grep -A 1 ppp
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr:my.ip.addr.ess P-t-P:pp.ip.addr.ess Mask:255.255.255.255
Wow! Nice! :)
