The kind that you log into a cellular ISP with.

I have a Sony Ericson GC83 that connects with Cingular.
(under GSM/GPRS)
Runs fine under windows, but obviously, I'd like to get it going under Gentoo.

I tried some google searches and couldnt find much useful stuff.

I have a Sony Ericson GC82 (did not know there was an 83) working under gentoo. Took all day with google before I found out how to get it working.

How far have you gotten? Does your system recognize the card?

Here is my /etc/ppp/peers/cingular file

Code:

:192.168.201.1
# Cingular connect
/dev/ttyS2
230400
user ISPDA@CINGULARGPRS.COM
password CINGULAR1
defaultroute
usepeerdns
crtscts
lock
noauth
local
persist
#novj
#debug
#nodetach
connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v -V -t3 -f /etc/ppp/chat-gc82'


The 192.168.201.1 is simply a private address that you try to assign to the remote side so that it does not use 127.0.0.2 which will not work under linux.

Here is my /etc/ppp/chat-gc82 file

Code:

"" "AT+cfun=1"
OK "AT+cgreg=1"
OK "AT"
TIMEOUT 40
#REG:\s1 AT+cgdcont=2,"IP","proxy"
REG:\s1 AT+cgdcont=1,"IP","ISP.CINGULAR"
OK "ATDT*99***1#"
CONNECT ''



These files use compression. If your service does not have that, you will need to change a few things, but try that first.

Well "cardctl status" tells me that something is going on.
When I insert the card, cardctl status returns the following:

Socket 0:
3.3V 16-bit PC Card
function 0: [ready], [wp], [bat dead]

Also, I dont get a new ttySxx when I insert the card.
and dmesg doesnt report anything either

So, I have your scripts ready and waiting, but I cant use them yet.

What does syslog say when you plug it in?

Here's the tail end of syslog:

So, it looks like it can't find the modules.

I originally thought it was pcmcia-cs,that built the modules but that doesnt seem to be right.
(It does produce the man files for all the modules!)

Looking at the kernel, it took me a long time to figure out where the modules get built, but I think I finally got it. So, I'll build a new kernel and take it from there.

I'll be back later if I get stuck, but this was a good hint.
Thanks!

Hey Raffi,

I got it working. Thanks for the help.

Sorry to try and resurrect the dead thread.0

I have a GC83, but I haven't been given an e-mail address or password. Do I need to get one? Mine takes a SIM card -- same with yours, right?

john36: What did you do to get yours working? Do you recommend a particular site?

The information posted above should work for you as well. The same login is used for everyone, the security is through registering the card and paying your bills.

i'm having trouble getting started. dmesg shows that my card is recognized, but i'm not quite sure what to do next. do i reconfigure the /etc/init.d/net.ppp0 script using the corresponding conf.d/net.ppp0 configuration file? That's what I did. I left all the defaults, and just made the following changes:

PEER="cingular"
MODEMPORT="/dev/ttyS2"
LINESPEED="230400"
AUTOCFGFILES="no"
AUTOCHATSCRIPT="no"

I used the above settings and put the chat-gc82 file and the cingular file in the proper directories.

Did you guys start ppp and execute pppd directly rather than using the init script? If so, how do you do that?

Thanks =)

I did not use the net.ppp0 script. I just setup a peer file in /etc/ppp/peers/cingular and and chat script in /etc/ppp/somename and used the command
Code:

/usr/sbin/pppd call cingular

I am so close that it hurts!! Thanks for the great and timely help Raffi. It looks like the connection is getting terminiated after the IPCP request is sent. I have tried both the proxy and the cingular_isp mode. Any idea on what could be causing this?


This is the verbose output of pppd (debug enabled):

The good news is it looks like everything is working as it should. You probably have a service that does not permit the data acceleration. Try changing the ISPDA@CINGULARGPRS.COM to ISP@CINGULARGPRS.COM and turning off all of the different compression types.

It didn't work after I disabled compression. I could tell that compression was disabled because I didn't see the "compress xx xx xx" codes in the IPCP which was sent. The same problem occurred: "LCP term" requests were sent by the peer in response to my IPCP requests.

I also tried changing 'ISPDA' to 'ISP', and I tried both cingular.wap and proxy for the APN. I am going to do some more searching and create a very detailed output for my configuration files using other people's attempts and the man pages.

I am thankful for your help Raffi, but it's time for me to do my part. Ideally, I want to make a detailed, commented script which can be used by me and users with other linux distros. If I have the time, I will try to expand this to other pieces of hardware too. There are many combinations with regard to compression types, APNs, init commands, and pppd options. It's about time that I started a journal with what I have and have not tried. I will publish my findings to the AT&T forums too.

Hopefully that will help me pull my weight in the open source world =) I'll keep you posted on my progress.

So I got it working =)

It took me awhile to get back to you since I was putting together a HOWTO. It's not very universal yet, but I'm working on it. Of course, your name is mentioned. If you're curious, you can visit:

except that I am using WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM, CINGULAR1, and CGDCONT=1,"IP", "wap.cingular"

those settings seem to work under windows, although I do not have to enter the cgdcont stuff. not sure how to proceed, and would love to get any input on how you solved your problem (BTW, I am using a derivative of your script) Thanks in advance.

This looks like a compression issue again. The connection closed is right after negotiating compression. Try turning it off or finding a login that allows for compression.

no compression of any kind, right? so why is it balking when I ask it for an IP address? I am able to get rid of "<ms-dns1 0.0.0.0> <ms-dns3 0.0.0.0>", but it doesn't change anything. Would getting rid of "<addr 0.0.0.0>" help? If so, what option is that in the peers file, or is it in the chat one?

If I sound less than intelligent, it's been a long day, and I haven't gotten much sleep this week so far. Thank you for any and all help you give/have given me.

I can't tell without more information. What does your /etc/ppp/options file look like? What does the command line that pppd was run with look like (try ps auxww | grep ppp). What changes did you make to the peers file?

that is all I have. the only modification I have made to the options file directly is the first and last lines, as someone said that fixed their problem, but I guess mine is different.

BTW, I am running this in DSL, not gentoo, I just saw that he had the same error setup as I did, and asked here. The command that I run in the shell is:
Code:
sudo pppd call cingular
(cingular is the name of my peers file)

thanks again, for all of your help

Well that looks pretty good. Are you sure your WAP.CINGULAR username is correct? Have you tried the one provided above? I would exepct the username to at least need an @CINGULARGPRS.COM at the end.

my UN is WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
my APN is wap.cingular

I know that those are correct, as I have used them in windows, and it works fine. I am not sure about the CGDCONT number, though.

edit: I notice that most people who get a connection do not have
Code:
<addr 0.0.0.0> <ms-dns1 0.0.0.0> <ms-dns3 0.0.0.0>
in their IP request. could that be the problem?

edit2: I am almost certain that the cgdcont number is correct... not sure how to proceed... help?

So let's try going the other way and turning on some of the compression. It is closing the connection during the negotiation so it must not like something it is seeing.

what is <addr 0.0.0.0> ? I would like to turn that off, just to try. I have disabled the dns options, but no change. I will try with different/all compressions on, and post up if I get anything different.

0.0.0.0 means any address. It should allow for the address to be set by the other end. This used to be a problem because some providers set it to something strange like 127.0.0.2.

is <addr x.x.x.x> a request for a specific address, and using 0.0.0.0 is asking for any address? If so, is there a way to disable that? I would like to try it without that option, as every successful script I have seen does not have that in the IPCP request line.

edit: enabling certain compression(s) yields:

sent [CCP ConfReq id=0x1 <deflate 15> <deflate(old#) 15>]
or
sent [CCP ConfReq id=0x1 <bsd v1 15>]

between IPCP request and TermReq
