here is my previous post on the subject
in different parts of the country,
you may have a slightly different setup
the remote line responds to me with "ANSNet"
yours may be different.
i also had downloaded the windows executable,
to see their connect script in action.
this is how i know that they have 3 or 4
different options, depending on how the remote line
sends its initial response
i would run the setup i listed in the above link with a terminal window,
if the first response they send is includes ANSNet
you are home free.
other choices are:
most of them have different login sequences
if it is something different,
you will need to install the windows dialer on a windows system,
to get access at the script
to see what responses are expected out of you.
email me privately
as i probably shouldnt publish their script.
who knows what i agreed to to get it.
you still have to divulge your credit card number,
they say after 10 hours usage a month you have to pay
when the trial is over,
but it vaguely seems the trial has been extended
i have never been charged but i dont use it much.
my main gaol was to get my linmodem configured
for linux so it was ready to go when i needed it,
and also to have portable internet access.
but i have moved up to a sierra 550 wireless card
thru sprintpcs for portable internet access.
now that is a story.
i do believe that they have the ability to update their windows
binary dialer configuration, so what may work today could
become invalid in the future. Even in windows though, if you
set up the connect strings manually, you dont need to run their
binary doodad/spyware?/whateverthey call it.
i did verify that my username/password was accepted under windows,
before i tackled the linux connection.
ok, so i cheated a little .
write back if you need more assistance

Randy Perkins <randyperkins@...>
I figured out how to get to other mail servers than Earthlink - we had to do this at work so our mobile users could connect. Unfortunately we had to use Outlook's settings to do this. I'll try to remember what we did, as it could be useful to someone else :)

i have road runner cable modem at home
and it works,works real well.
it works better than either of the dsl setups i had had.
Telocity, and Earthlink.
Earthlink will not let you conect to any mail
server but their own, if that is important to you.
Telocity is outof business
if you go with roadrunner and they offer roaming dial
up access, i have figured out how to get it to work
under linux, if you are interested
