Nmap has an option to mimic ping.
As I see on the net, lot of people
has the similar problem using non
nokia phone.
One poster found the solution reading
manual for the very phone. Something
not obvious to human mind. Try that way
first. (Selecting country and service
I always used kernel sort of ppp (pppd)
on desktop, having it easier to trouble-
shoot. Have you checked syntax for conf
file for unvisible errors?
Best regards
