Re: PPP serving with dual modems on a PII box...

Please excuse me. I was sort of delirious when I wrote that message.
Here is the dmesg.

These modems were previously running in a Solaris x86 box, so I don't
think they are "winmodems", however, I am not actually sure what kind
they are, as my people have lost the manuals somewhere. Is there some
sort of "reconfiguration reboot" in BSD, as Solaris has? Thanks for any
help anyone can provide. (Please excuse me, Steve; thanks to you, as
