Description

pfSense currently doesn't include the 3G provider I'm using. Here's the provider's data:

Country: Slovenia
Provider: Tušmobil
Usename: tusmobil
Password: internet
Phone number: *99#
APN: internet.tusmobil.si

Seems like low hanging fruit.

Add a PPP device under interfaces assign, there, create a new PPP and there is a dropdown selection with providers. Not sure if it's from the internet or on the local device.

Seth, serviceproviders.xml is in our repos but there's an upstream.

I'm not sure how to specify the "phone number" of *99# but that looks kinda sorta like the standard GSM connection sequence and other APN databases I've seen don't explicitly specify one for this provider.

Update for serviceproviders.xml is in github now (it should be linked here shortly.)

Jernej, once you can confirm this works I'll get this contributed upstream .

Okay, it's actually in github now. Forgot to 'git push' again. ;-)

Yeah, *99# is the default dial string for these types of devices, similar to bluetooth. Pretty much the defined dial sequence for 3G connections.

For CDMA (e.g. Verizon) it's #777.
