GPRS (Orange UK) on a Debian GNU/Linux Box

6310i. The phone has GPRS enabled with Orange in the UK. This note explains
how to set up GPRS with ppp, it assumes your phone is visible, if you need the
instructions on seeing your phone with BlueTooth look
You need to have pppd installed.
You need to copy these two scripts, and possibly change them if you are not
using Orange in the UK.
You can grab the files from Here to save you
copying and pasting from below.
The first script you need to create is '/etc/ppp/peers/gprs':
connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/chat-gprs'
You can change /dev/rfcomm0 to match your device, for example /dev/ttyS0 - I
needed to have the 'lcp-echo-failure 0' option when using Bluetooth.
You will then need to create the chat script '/etc/ppp/peers/chat-gprs':
ABORT '\nNO ANSWER\r'
ABORT '\nNO CARRIER\r'
ABORT '\nNO DIALTONE\r'
When you have the two files above in place, simply type:
pppd call gprs
And to hang up type:
