View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wavecom GSM Modem

September 17th, 2009, 05:26 PM
Hi All, I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 and am hitting problems with Gnokii and my Wavemodem, I'm not sure if its down to my tty permissions so I will post here what I have done so far.

Install Gnokii

apt-get install gnokii

Created a .gnokiirc with the following

port = /dev/ttyS0
model = AT
initlength = default
connection = serial
use_locking = no
serial_baudrate = 19200
handshake = hardware
connect_script =
disconnect_script =

smsc_timeout = 10

allow_breakage = 0
bindir = /usr/sbin/
TELEPHONE = 123456789

debug = off
rlpdebug = off
xdebug = off

Added the username to the dialout group

sudo addgroup $USERNAME dialout


KERNEL=="ttyS[0-9]", GROUP="dialout", MODE="0777"

to the end of etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules

I thought that would be it but I get the following.

When I try to identify it

gnokii --identify
GNOKII Version 0.6.22
Telephone interface init failed: Command timed out.
Cannot unlock device.
Command timed out.

Has anybody got any ideas on what I have missed?
