Ive just installed Fluxbox so im a real n00b to this window manager.
I need to know how to access the modem configuration in Fluxbox. This isnt apparent from the menu i get on the desktop so if anyone can advise it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

check out a package called fluxconf, it was a huge help when i installed flux. :
Don\'t be a bitch! Use Slackware.

well, if you use kppp, and have kde installed, or anything like that you can still access it via a shell. Just open a shell and type the command you normally would to open your modem config... just do it all in a shell..

I dont have KDE installed so kppp is no good.
Ive tried the following command from a terminal but it shows ATZ then goes back to a command line.
My /etc/ppp/peers/ppp0 file is as follows
and my /etc/ppp/peers/wvdial file The wvdial.conf file contains all the correct settings ie. uname, passwd, isp tel no, device (ttyS0)
connect "usr/bin/wvdial --remotename ppp0 --chat 'Freeserve'"
Ive also tried the following command
but this just gives me a '>' prompt.
./pppd /dev/ttys0 connect "chat -V" ATZ OK ATMO OK ATDT1260 CONNECT ogin <login name> assword <password>" modem defaultroute crtscts -detach
Im completely new to the pppd command as ive previously used a GUI to connect to the internet.
Anyone help me?

i don't think any of these articles are to do with modem configuration, but it is all i can contribute here because i was more fortunate in that wvdial worked for me. though i wish it didn't so i would have learned what was going on properly. i'm sure i will get back to it eventaully.
Hmm...theres something a little peculiar here. Oh i see what it is! the sentence is talking about itself! do you see that? what do you mean? sentences can\'t talk! No, but they REFER to things, and this one refers directly-unambigeously-unmistakably-to the very sentence which it is!

Thanks for the links but they didnt help alot
I did a tail -f /var/log/messages on a seperate terminal and found the follwing results after typing ./pppd call ppp0 in the first terminal
Obviously the modem is working ok as im online now on my other OS.
pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.41
Modem not responding
Connect script failed
Heres the contents of /etc/wvdial.conf
Anyone else any ideas?
