Linux / Unix Command: wvdialconf
Command Library

NAME

wvdialconf - build a configuration file for wvdial(1)

 

SYNOPSIS

wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

 

DESCRIPTION

wvdialconf detects your modem, its maximum baud rate, and a good initialization string and generates or updates the wvdial(1) configuration file based on this information.

wvdialconf is completely non-interactive. You still need to edit /etc/wvdial.conf to specify the phone number, login name, and password of your internet account in order for wvdial(1) to work.

It is safe to run wvdialconf if a configuration file already exists. In that case, only the Modem, Baud, Init, and Init2 options are changed in the [Dialer Defaults] section, and only if autodetection is successful.

 

SEE ALSO

wvdial(1), wvdial.conf(5).


Important: Use the man command (% man) to see how a command is used on your particular computer.
