Connect Script failed

Connect Script failed

Post by chr.. » Thu, 07 May 1998 04:00:00

I have followed the instructions that I was given from the Howto CH. 11.
to get pppd to work when I am logged in as a normal user.

I did the following:

chmod u+s /usr/sbin/pp

well when I try to run pppd as  my normal login I get the following:

Connect script failed

 here is the message in /var/log/messages:

May  3 18:53:40 pooch kernel: PPP line discipline registered.
May  3 18:53:40 pooch kernel: registered device ppp0
May  3 18:53:40 pooch syslog: Warning - secret file /etc/ppp/pap-secrets

May  3 18:53:41 pooch pppd[123]: pppd 2.2.0 started by chrism, uid 1001
May  3 18:53:42 pooch pppd[123]: Exit.
May  3 18:55:40 pooch kernel: PPP: ppp line discipline successfully

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



1. PPP connect script fail?

Hi all,
        I have problems with keeping PPPD up all the times.
Once the modem handup remotely, my PPPd exit.
my config:


exec /usr/sbin/ppp-on /dev/ttyS1 connect /etc/ppp/redialer

this script works fine for multi phone no. redialer. Will it affect my

there is a line :
date..time ... pppd[12344] connect script fail, exit

.... pppd[12344] modem handup (sighup)
.... pppd[12344] terminate
.... pppd[12344] exit

I had the option 'persist', should it keep pppd redial once the modem
handup, right?

my pppd version: I am not sure, but it is not 2.2f, it came with
slakeware 3.1

Any helps, please?
