I have borrowed this text(in yellow ) from community doc
The name of your modem device is /dev/536ep0. You can now use sudo pppconfig
to set up pon & poff. To use Kppp you will need to create a symlink be able
to link the /dev/536ep0 to /dev/modem. Udev rewrites the /dev on each reboot
and you thus have to create a new file with kwrite, kate or gedit in
/etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules and put the following lines in it:
# Intelmodem536ep
KERNEL="536ep0"' SYMLINK="modem"

*MY problemis that i donot know how to create symlink file be able to link
/dev/536ep0 to /dev/modem*
