Projects / WvDial


WvDial (pronounced "Weave Dial") is an easier way to connect to the internet. It completely avoids the need for chat scripts, edits pap-secrets and chap-secrets for you, detects your modem automatically, and chooses a valid init string. It can even read and respond to command prompts at almost any ISP.

            Is this project still active? I've had to make some changes to WvDial 1.61 to get it to work with my modem. How do I send these changes back to the project leader?

            I've been using a much older version (from SuSE
            6.2) for a couple years now. It's almost
            magical in its simplicity.
