I have a couple of questions for anybody willing to answer them. I have a GSM modem with a t-mobile SIM card that I am currently trying to use to connect to the Internet. I am using Lucid amd64 machine. I have been running wvdial with a baud rate of 115200 with much success getting the output below:
then if I run ifconfig I can see that ppp0 now has an IP address like below:
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
--> Sending: AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","telargo.t-mobile.com"
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT*99***1#
--> Waiting for carrier.
--> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
--> Starting pppd at Sat Oct 23 10:40:09 2010
--> Pid of pppd: 2520
--> Using interface ppp0
--> local IP address 10.132.xxxxx
--> remote IP address 192.168.xxxxx
--> primary DNS address 172.17.xxxxx
--> secondary DNS address 172.17.xxxxx
this is where I'm lost. I'm figuring I have to set a route in the IP tables so that ppp0 routes to eth0 or another IP I can make up, but not familiar with IP tables or if there is a better/easier solution.
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr:10.132.xxxx P-t-P:192.168.xxxx Mask:255.255.255.255
UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:4 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:35 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:64 (64.0 B) TX bytes:2617 (2.6 KB)
here is my IP route table as of now:
