PPPD & MacPPP problems, sometimes works, sometimes doesn't?

Post by Neal Malon » Sat, 13 Jul 1996 04:00:00



We have people trying to call a Linux box and use PPP via MacPPP and MacPPP
seems very flaky at times.  Sometimes the user will get a connect no problem
and sometimes the Mac client will just appear to fail to negotiate a PPP
connection and drop the line giving a link dead message.  The scripts on the
Macintosh appear to be working fine and there seems to be no rhyme or reason
to when it works and when it doesn't.  PPP at the Linux end does not seem to
register an error, just a request by the client to disconnect when the PPP
connection fails.  The version of pppd is 2.1.2d and on the Macintosh side,
various versions of MacPPP and FreePPP have been tried.

Has anybody had any similar problems.  Tips or suggestions would be greatly
appreciated.
