Thread: PPP Slack 9.1 kernel 2.4.18

  1. PPP Slack 9.1 kernel 2.4.18

    Using PPP terminates without success connection. It resets, dials perfect,
    doesn't recieves any error like username or passwd, problem is after that,
    At the debug msg, sent LCP...repeats about 10 times, and never recieves
    reciv LCP line and prints time out msg. Yet!, After X and KDE 3.0 are up,
    with kppp, everything works. Any idea what script kppp uses, if there's
    any? Any1 experienced this kind of problem before?

    Make sure you are NOT attempting to look for a login or username prompt.
    The 'chat' script used to control the modem should set one or two error
    conditions, initialize the modem with the string recommended by the
    modem manufacturer, then dial. When chat detects that the modems have
    connected (usually CONNECT), exit the chat script, and start sending
    ppp frames. This means a script that looks like this:

    ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' "" AT&F1 OK ATDT2662902 CONNECT \d\c

    Note: AT&F1 = USR/3Com AT&F (AT&F0) = Rockewll & Lucent SEE YOUR
    MODEM MANUAL!

    Connect script is confusing the ISP. What error message does pppd report?

    And it's a poorly written application.

    The dialin (chat) script is an abortion - you can sorta figure out
    what it's doing by finding it's configuration. If all else fails, use
    'grep' to search for the telephone number in the files below /etc/.

    Compare that to the size of kppp, wvdial, or the other GUI "tools" that
    try to do the same thing. If you are trying to connect to earthlink,
    remember that they want 'chanow@earthlink.net' as a username, not just
    'chanow', That's because they contract dialin points from many other
    ISPs, and there has to be a way to tell whose customer is whose. For
    example, you posted from 4.249.96.136, which is an IP owned by level3.com
    not earthlink.

    if using irda and cell phone make sure you have a good signal. otherwise
    your modem is most likely improperly installed.
