WvDial and UK2.net
An installation I'm supporting normally connects to the Inet via ADSL but when this is occasionally not available they use a dial-up modem connecting to the free uk2.net ISP dialup service.
To do this (from a RH Linux box) they use WvDial but when it tries to connect the modem makes all the right noises in negotiating but then the connection is simply dropped.
AIUI this setup has never been made to work with UK2 although it used to work with a different ISP.
The wvdial.conf file is shown below and any comments would be appreciated. Even confirmation that someone somewhere has a similar setup working!
Obviously this is a United Kingdom based service.
