Hi, I am a new Red Hat 5.0 user. I love it and have had no problems. I
am encountering an intermittent problem dialing out with PPP using Red
Hat's Network Configuration in the Control Panel.
Here's what happens: I booted up my PC this morning and when to activate
my PPP connection, which works fine on other occasions. The TR light on
my Hayes Accura came on but the modem did not dial. I shut off the modem
and restartd it. Nothing. So I rebooted. This time I dialed out great.
Even deactivated and activated my PPP connection several times
I reboot again. This time I duplicate the problem -- it won't dial out.
So I reboot again. Works fine. I am writing to you now after this.
I noticed something in the messages that I receive on bootup. It doesnt
wind up being recorded in the dmesg file, but there's a line that says:
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysint: /dev/cua0 Permission denied
that appears. I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I would like
to track down why I can sometimes dial out with PPP and other times not.
Any help much appreciated. Please email me as well.
