Re: UK ADSL - Speedtouch Modem Initialisation

To all that have given assistance, a huge thankyou.  I can now get my
Alcatel modem to dial and sync and IP works fine.  Now its time for  ip
forwarding and pf !!  At least I know where to come for great advice

Once again, many thanks to the all who helped......Dan

I had the same problem. I manually created the device node with:

    cd /dev
    ./MAKEDEV ugen0

[I think maybe it is not created automatically if the ADSL modem is not
plugged in when the system boots?]

Incidently, I've been using an ALCATEL ADSL modem for months now with
Pipex and OpenBSD 3.1, so you might find looking at my setup helpful:

I built the speedtouch modem_run code within my home dir.

In /etc/rc.local:
    /home/jules/speedtouch/bin/modem_run -f
/home/jules/speedtouch/speedmgmt-1.3.3/mgmt/mgmt.o -m -v 2

To start ppp in foreground:
    ppp -foreground adsl

My ppp.conf file has:

     set log chat phase
     set authname ***
     set authkey ***
     set device !"/usr/local/bin/pppoa2 -vpi 0 -vci 38 -v 0"
     accept chap
     set speed sync
     set timeout 0
     enable lqr
     set lqrperiod 5
     set redial random 0
     set dial ""
     set ifaddr
     add default HISADDR

Hope that helps,
