command line based ppp dialer

Postby aspnair » 2010-03-13 04:02

I use Huawei EC1260 modem for mobile broadband connection. What are the command line shell based ppp dialing applications available apart from wvdial? Can anyone provide some insight how to use pppd/chat directly.

Actually wvdial is working on debian very well with this modem. But I need to use it on an arm le based system, where wvdial does not work properly because of setcontext(), getcontext() dependency on arm platforms.

This page may be helpful:

Scroll down to the section titled, "Configuring a Dial-Up Connection using pppconfig."
You may need to install the pppconfig package before following the instructions on that page.
