I assume you're using chat(8) to write your modem script. It works great
for me every time. Here's what I use when dialing the student modem pool:
'ABORT' 'NO CARRIER'
'ABORT' 'NO DIALTONE'
'ABORT' 'Invalid Login'
'ABORT' 'Login incorrect'
where "XXXXX" is your login (UW NetID) and "YYYYY" is your password. You
also need to have a functional /etc/ppp/options. Mine looks like:
lock passive defaultroute crtscts ipcp-accept-local ipcp-max-configure 50
