PPP/CHAT: chat won't chat with modem, why?

PPP/CHAT: chat won't chat with modem, why?

Post by Charles Re » Mon, 10 Mar 1997 04:00:00

I've been trying to get a dynamic IP connection to work via ppp, and I
think I've narrowed the problem down to the chat program.  chat
doesn't seem to be getting any responses from the modem.  I've been
trying to figure out what's going on by running chat from the command
line (can this work?), but no luck.  For example,

gives the following error messages:

Mar  9 11:43:49 rezkbox chat[1285]: timeout set to 3 seconds
Mar  9 11:43:49 rezkbox chat[1285]: send (^MAT^M^M)
Mar  9 11:43:49 rezkbox chat[1285]: expect (OK)
Mar  9 11:43:52 rezkbox chat[1285]: alarm
Mar  9 11:43:52 rezkbox chat[1285]: send (+++)
Mar  9 11:43:52 rezkbox chat[1285]: expect (OK)
Mar  9 11:43:55 rezkbox chat[1285]: alarm
Mar  9 11:43:55 rezkbox chat[1285]: Failed

I really don't know what's going on.  I'm also a bit confused about
the chat program; it's supposed to communicate with the modem, but how
does it even know which serial port the modem is on?

Any ideas?

1. Netra ppp chat modem-chat

I have a sun netra im trying to get to work with a telebit worldblazer modem
for a ppp link. The problem is nothing i seem to do will get it to dial. Yes
its plugged in, yeah i can make the little lights on the modem flicker by
catting files to its cau port(/dev/term/b) but it just wont respond to my
modem-chat string from /etc/netra.cfg. I have rtfm'd already, not that there
is much of a manual.

Could someone please email me working modem-chat string to use?

email replys appreciated....
