I've never used EzPPP, but in order to reference anything but a raw IP
addresse you have to have a nameserver defined.  Generally that means
that you need to place the IP address (four numbers separated by dots)
somewhere in the configuration.

To add it manually, put the following line in your /etc/resolv.conf

   nameserver xx.xx.xx.xx

where the "xx.xx.xx.xx" is replaced with a valid IP address.

1. Connects, establishes a PPP Session, and then ........ nothing.


I've made progress in setting up a dial-up to the internet, but now
I'm stuck and can't find the answer in the howto's, archives, etc.

Using minicom, after login, I get the following:

 Entering PPP Session.
 IP Address is 207.172.xx.xx
 MTU is 1006.

So far so good, right?  But I'm not able to do anything from that
point.  Can't ping servers, Netscape says   "... unable to locate the

If I press enter, I get a line of garbage ( ~y} #.!}!}!} }8! etc. etc.
etc.)   If I understand the HOWTO (Sect. 9.5), this indicates a
successful PPP connection.  But I don't know what to do next.

After a minute or so, it times out and says No Carrier.

Am I overlooking something really simple?

Can anybody help?
