<.> Hi,
<.> 
<.> I'm trying to connect two FreeBSD machines with a leased line. I have two 
<.> 28k8 modems to do this.
<.> But how do I configure them?? I can't dial a number and put the other one in 
<.> auto answer as with a normal telefone line. How must I configure the modems 
<.> to let them connect to each other and re-connect automaticly when the 
<.> connection was lost?
<.> 
<.> Thanks, you've all been a great help installing FreeBSD (for the last 6 weeks)
<.>

Using modems on leased lines is not as simple as plugging in the line.
There are electrical differences besides the lack of dial-tone and
ringing.  It appears that the run-of-the-mill modems are not readily
prepared to connect over leased lines.  Check the manual carefully
(sometimes the only reference to leased lines is a single sentence)
and consult with the manufacturer.

good luck
