capi in linux 2.6

Post by Mimmu » Fri, 25 Mar 2005 01:09:02


Hi,
I'm trying to set up a dialin (RAS) server with Linux 2.6.8 (Debian) and a
DIVA Eicon 4BRI ISDN card.
I'd like to allow high-speed (>33.6) connections to analog modems.
I read somewhere that capidrv in 2.6 doesn't support analog modems: is it
true?
Trying anyway the simple setup described here:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
I get only messages like below:

Mar 23 17:05:19 localhost pppd[2154]: capiplugin: incoming call(1):
"yyyyyy" ->
"xxxxxx" incoming (0x4)
Mar 23 17:05:19 localhost kernel: capidrv-1: incoming call yyyyy,1,2,xxxxxx

Any help?

Thanks in advance

Hi Mimmus

I can't really help you with your problem at hand, but the following
remarks might be of interest to you.

First: I always thought that the capiplugin is an AVM only hack. But I
might be wrong.
Second: Eicon offers a proprietary driver, which features apart from
CAPI also tty devices. From a linux application like wvdial, hylafax
and pppd these devices look like 'normal' analogue tty devices. This
makes it relatively easy to setup all sorts of things in a 'standard'
linux way. The only problem I had was to figure out what init strings
to use. It is buried in the documentation.
(I still use wvdial for internet access: I could post the init string
if you are interested. I don't use Hylafax anymore and I can't remember
how I set it up I am afraid. And I never setup a dial in server.)

Eicon sent me the source code for the driver (with a non-disclosure
agreement I had to sign and fax back), so that I could compile it
myself (the usual linux stuff no hassle). It runs on SuSE 9.1 which
uses a 2.6 kernel.


Kind regards
Michael
