If you are not using atdialer(1bnu) and mdmcfg(1M), use a dialer that is an entry in /etc/uucp/Dialers. To do this:
If a modem configuration does not exist, or /etc/uucp/Dialers does not contain a suitable entry, you must create one or the other.
``Dialers file entries'' lists dialer types that are available as Dialers entries.
Dialers file entries
|Modem or data switch||Dialers entry|
|AT&T DATAPHONE II 2212C||att2212c|
|AT&T DATAPHONE II 2224||att2224|
|AT&T Programmable 300/1200 Model 4000||att4000|
|Develcon network dataswitch||develcon|
|Direct line; dialer not used||direct|
|Hayes Smartmodem 1200 or compatible||hayes1200|
|Hayes Smartmodem 2400 or compatible||hayes2400|
|Micom network dataswitch||micom|
|Network Listener Service||nls|
|Racal Vadic 3451||vadic|
If you are experimenting with an unsupported modem, the ``hayes2400'' entry in the Dialers file is a good starting point; it can be used even with high-speed modems. The following example Devices entry is for a modem that uses a Dialers file entry but operates at 19200bps:
ACU term/00m - 19200 Hayes_Compatible_2400
The following Dialers file entry, standard, should also be suitable for many V.32bis and higher speed modems:
standard =W-, "" AT&F1 OK\r ATB0M1X4 OK\r ATDT\T\r\c CONNECTAlthough it is possible to create or modify an entry in the Dialers file yourself, the syntax can be difficult to follow. Consult the Dialers(4bnu) manual page for more information.
