Hi,  I would like to be able to connect my VODEM to a linux firewall but have only very basic, if any at all, LINUX skills.

Is there anyone out there that has been able to connect a VODEM to linux and managed to get it going.

I would be very greatfull for any assistance in my venture to install the VODEM to a SmoothWall firewall server so that I can get my other computers back on the internet.

I live in the Wellington region and am willing to travel to your location or if necessary pick you up and drive you to my location should such action be necessary.

Thank you for any help that you are able to give me.

John Viseur

Thanks John.

What do you mean when you say "Change APN to"

All devices connect through an APN - if installing software from other Vodafone networks you might have to change the APN to match the New Zealand one.
