Verizon UML290 Error at PPP



  • I'm trying to setup a Pantech UML290 from Verizon as a fallback device.

    I followed all the instructions and have gotten to the point of enabling the interace; however, when I do it doesn't seem to work. Looking into the System logs under PPP I see the following:

    Runing 2.1-RELEASE on amd64.

    I've searched the forums for references to this issue and the uml290 and can't find anything.

    Any ideas?



  • I figured out the issue.

    I had an APN set and was following http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,56696.0.html

    If you follow the basic intrusions of that user and use the phone number "99**3#" you do not set an APN inside ppp.
