Configuring Modem Speed for a Dial-up Link

A major issue in modem configuration is designating the speed at which the modem should operate. The following guidelines apply to modems that are used with Sun Microsystems computers:

For a dial-out machine, set the modem speed in the PPP configuration files, such as /etc/ppp/peers/peer-name, or by specifying the speed as an option for pppd.

For a dial-in server, you need to set the speed by using the ttymon facility or the Solaris Management Console, as described in Configuring Devices on the Dial-in Server.
