I've a Huawei E3372 usb modem and works out of box when I connected in my Raspbian Strech. With others Huawei modems I needed vwdial setting up, but with E3372 seems it not use wvdial to up network interface. My problem is the following, if the sim has a pin I don't know where to configure the pin. I've try to adding the pin in /etc/network/interface like that

iface eth1 inet dhcp
  wwan-apn gprs-service.com
  wwan-pin 1234

But not work. Just work if the SIM has no PIN. The 'ifconfig' command shows same autoconfig information

eth1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
    inet  netmask  broadcast
    inet6 fe80::ccb:57c9:e52f:80f7  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>

Where is the configuration file when the usb modem is setting up automatically?
