I have wvdial working from the command line in a debian squeeze 32 bit install.

Googling around revealed several suggestions to simply use

auto ppp0 iface ppp0 inet wvdial

However, upon reboot I get the error:

startpar: service(s) returned failure: wvdial ... failed!

I have also had zero luck getting wvdial to run from an init.d script. Any suggestions?

I have also tried getting wvdial to automatically start by setting a cron job for @reboot. Does not work, no errors thrown that I can see. – lysdexia Apr 3 '12 at 4:58
Can you start wvdial from command line? Does it need an extra argument for the profile name? Are you using the exact same command in the init script? – XTL Aug 10 '12 at 18:03
