I am having a problem getting my dial-up account to work from my Linux
(Redhat 6.1) box. I have just installed an ActionTec modem (advertised to
work with Linux) and got all the scripts set up to dial my ISP. I even get
to the point of seeing that ppp0 is connected to /dev/ttyS2.
However, after about 60 seconds (the TIMEOUT specified in
/etc/ppp/ppp-on-dialer), my modem hangs up with a message about LCP timeout
on sending the Config-Requests.
I even modified the ppp-on-dialer script to contain "noauth", thinking that
my modem was expecting PAP or CHAP authentication - no luck - it still times
out on the Config-Requests.
I also verified that kerneld is running (saw that in a PPP document on the
I am including the outputs/contents of several items that I thought would be
necessary. Any help would be appreciated. I can provide more information
if necessary. (such as the ppp-on and ppp-on-dialer contents)
Please be sure to include my home e-mail on your response - I don't get to
check the newsgroups too often.
