if your modem is a serial modem, and you only have 1 serial connection
at back of computer,
it will be ttyS0 To connect turn on modem (if you filled in your isp in
pppconfig) type in a terminal *pon "name of isp you entered in pppconfig"
and press enter key
*To disconnect type at command line *poff only and press enter key
*Hope this helps
