how to connect reliance net-connect in rhel 6

connect your reliance net-connect to your pc.
open terminal and do the following steps

[root@station1 ~]# yum install -y wvdial
[root@station1 ~]# vim /etc/wvdial.conf

[Dialer reliance]
Auto DNS = on
Auto Reconnect = on
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Baud = 9600
Init1 = ATZ
Phone = #777
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Username = --------------->enter your number
Abort on Busy = off
Password = -----------------> enter the password here obviously it your number itself
Abort on No Dialtone = off

Stupid Mode = on

[root@station1 ~]# service network stop

then click on the reliance icon on the desktop and eject it otherwise device busy error will occur.

[root@station1 Desktop]# wvdial reliance
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60

--> local  IP address *****************
--> remote IP address ***************
--> primary   DNS address ****************
--> secondary DNS address ****************

now open your browser and check

if its not working then do these steps

[root@station1 ~]# vim /var/run/ppp/resolv.conf
nameserver ***********
nameserver ************
copy these two lines from your terminal and paste in
[root@station1 ~]# vim /etc/resolv.conf

nameserver ***********
nameserver ************

[root@station1 ~]# service named restart

don't close this terminal. now open your web browser and start browsing it should work, to close your internet press ctrl+c in the terminal.

To avoid these steps i just made a simple script one for connection and another one for reverting back to your localnetwork.

For connection script - click here
For localnetwork script (if you have dns configured) -  click here

mv the scripts to /root and change the permission to 777

Note : Open the file and change the nameserver if its is difference for you. ll'y open file and change the search and nameserver ip according to your domain. Once done then no need to do the above steps..

Just in terminal run sh /root/ for connecting and press ctrl+c to disconnect. Run sh /root/ to get back your localnetwork.
