WVDIALCONF(1)                                                    WVDIALCONF(1)


       wvdialconf - build a configuration file for wvdial(1)


       wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf


       wvdialconf  detects  your modem, its maximum baud rate, and a good ini-
       tialization 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 success-


       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


       An  exit status of 0 means that a modem was detected and the configura-
       tion file was updated successfully.

       Any other value means that something went wrong and  the  configuration
       file was unchanged.
