PPP problem

Post by Indian » Thu, 19 Nov 1998 04:00:00

I have some problem connecting to the internet whit rh5.0 linux version.
It's look like the problem could be that the line is not 8
bit clean. I read that you need to have eight data bits, no parity, and
one stop bit. Also that the pppd software will automatically
put the line into eight data bits, no parity, and one stop bit but the
remote must match  this configuration or framing and parity
errors may occur.
There is the log file that i get.

Try  this:

check your chat script. It should at the end have a

    'CONNECT '       ''      

change it to

    'CONNECT'           '\c'
