: Help, I am trying to connect to *.net through Linux using PPP.
: I have got as far as dialing up and entering my username and password. I
: then get a load of nonsense (PPP info from *.net I think) but after a
: couple of seconds * disconnects me (I think it is * it could be my
: end). What do I need to do to kepp the connection up?
: Unfortunately my connection works fine under Win95. Please help me or I
: might have to use Win95 more often!!!!!!!!
This is very common these days. M$, with win95, has forced ISP's all
over the world to accept PAP -authentication in their userlogins. It's
not impossible in Linux either. How to deal with that can be seen, as
