First setup your qadsl.conf file with the information you have received from your ISP. It should be at least the name (or IP) of their login server, your login ID and and password.
Different providers have setup their login servers differently. See the sample qadsl.conf file included in this package for help on setting up qadsl for your ISP.
If you have problems connecting the flags --verbose and --debug are really useful tools that let you see all the interactions between qadsl and the login server. However, please note that when the login daemon has started you will not see anything more on your screen. Instead you have to consult the system logfiles. On a Debian system the file /var/log/daemon.log is where qadsl logs go.
/usr/local/etc/qadsl.conf Usually the location of a system wide qadsl configuration file. $HOME/.qadslrc User configuration file, takes precedent over any global file.
The qadsl.conf(5) man page describes the componentes of the configuration file.
Telia AB ADSL service, COMHEM Cable internet service, Tiscali Internet (ADSL or broadband), or similiar service based on Orbyte Wireless System.
