Thank for all the help in making my software modem work.
It feels like I have created a compendium in my last post at:
http://www.pcguide.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=15918.

I have two small quirks with the modem.
To connect to the internet I run a command prompt called
kppp.

(1) The kppp program looks for ppp0 interface
one first attempt it fails.
One second attempt 90% of the time it connects
So thus redhat must somehow solve how to connect.

(2) My connection on average lasts just over 30-45 minutes a session
After which I need to reconnect.

I guess I can live with these minor quirks but would still like to solve.

Here is the log when I run kppp

sid@localhost sid]$ kppp &
[1] 1137
[sid@localhost sid]$ Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0".
Opener: received SetSecret
Opener: received SetSecret
Opener: received OpenLock
Opener: received OpenDevice
...
In parent: pppd pid 1148
Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device
Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device
Kernel supports ppp alright.

Opener: received KillPPPDaemon
In killpppd(): Sending SIGTERM to 1148
...

Opener: received ExecPPPDaemon
In parent: pppd pid 1245

************************************************** *****************
After first attemp I am able to connect.
When I get kicked out from the session I get this message

Any ideas on how I can improve my Internet session?
