Default Re: tethering an 8520 curve to o2 on linux mint 11

Ok . . . . so i made some sort of progress . . . . i re read the info in the ink at the top of the forum and realised i didnt have the two files created -

/etc/chatscripts/blackberry:
Quote:
ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' ABORT VOICE ABORT 'NO DIALTONE' ABORT 'NO DIAL TONE' ABORT 'NO ANSWER' ABORT DELAYED ABORT ERROR
SAY "Initializing\n"
'' ATZ
SAY "ATE\n"
OK 'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"'
OK 'AT'
OK 'ATDT*99***1#'
SAY "Dialing\n"

And this ...........................

/etc/ppp/peers/blackberry :
Quote:
debug debug debug
nodetach
/dev/pts/0
115200
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -f /etc/chatscripts/blackberry"
nomultilink
defaultroute
noipdefault
ipcp-restart 7
ipcp-accept-local
ipcp-accept-remote
# added this, so that it doesn't disconnect after few mn of innactivity
lcp-echo-interval 0
lcp-echo-failure 999
modem
noauth
nocrtscts
noipdefault
novj # refused anyway, no point in trying every time
usepeerdns
user ""
password ""

so i created them . . . .

then i did this . . . . just out of curiosity . . . . .sudo pppd call blackberry and it comes back
ATZ

after a minute or so if i click anywhere in the terminal it goes back to
dave@dave-ThinkPad-T61 ~ $

but on another occasion i got this -
dave@dave-ThinkPad-T61 ~ $ pppd call blackberry
bash: /usr/sbin/pppd: Permission denied

this is all on my mint install by the way so if that helps any ?? let me know

thank you
