Default External ISDN modem

I used a 3com ISDN modem for net and voice for a while. It had an ethernet connection and a USB. I used the ethernet port to connect to my gentoo box. It was just easier.

Subject: [gentoo-user] External ISDN modem


Has anyone used an external ISDN modem with Gentoo?* I see there are a
couple articles about setting up ISDN but they seem to be for internal
cards.* This device uses USB, ethernet, or serial.* Just wondering if
it might be a big task or not.

Yep. I used USR Courier IModems (both internal and external) to run a
BBS for a few years. Originally, I used OS/2 but I switched to Gentoo
Linux eventually.

The IModems were serial only but trivial to set up - exactly the same as
any serial modem. Given your options, I would almost certainly go for
ethernet. Whatever you choose, I can't see huge problems - more trial
and error.
