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.
BUGS
We're willing to entertain the possibility. Let us know if you have any problems by sending an e-mail to <wvdial@nit.ca>. Also, there is now a mailing list for discussion about wvdial. If you are having problems, or have anything else to say, send e-mail to <wvdial-list@lists.nit.ca>.
DIAGNOSTICS
An exit status of 0 means that a modem was detected and the configuration file was updated successfully. Any other value means that something went wrong and the configuration file was unchanged.
