I guess because the pppd daemon died.Quote:>Does anyone know why when i connect i get the error "pppd dameon died"?
For a non-kppp
For step by step instructions about setting up ppp under Linux, see

I made a trick .. instead of using chat to connect PPP like was in the
(that for me doesn't work) I used dip (it's the one that is supposed to be
used with SLIP connections) .. I make a script for dip so it connects using
PPP, and everything goes fine till I connect... After I connect the host
where i'm connected is Okay and everything seems to be Okay. but when I do
I simple ping to my own IP (not localhost but my assigned fixed IP) it says
unable to reach host.. I think the hardest thing to setup in linux is PPP
:( .. geee...
I have the Slackware 3.0 stuff... and I feel like i'm a newbie.. :(
Is out there any better FAQs or How-TOs for the PPP connections ???
