I don't know if your phone will work. For KPPP to use it, it would have to function the
same as a USB Modem. If it will do that, what you need to do is make a link: /dev/modem
to the proper device for your phone. Normally, this would be:
ln -s /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 /dev/modem
Then tell KPPP to use: /dev/modem for the device.
I doubt that that will work.
OTOH, if the phone will function as a network node, you would need something that would
work with what ever network protocol it used.
I doubt that the phone would use SLIP unless it is Linux based so you can't treat it as
Another possibility is that you could still use it as a tty (but not with PPP) if you knew
how to communicate with it.
