Dialup works!

September 16, 2009 — BarryK
I'm doing a series of basic sanity checks on 4.3.

I went through the exercise of a frugal install, then tested dialup -- yes, working!

The modem in this PC has a PcTel 789 chipset, so it's a software modem. Piece of cake to run PupDial and connect.

I have signed up for a full year with Netbay Internet, the people who provide my dialup.
Although I have satellite broadband, my dialup account is a backup and also I need it for testing purposes.
