RedHat 7.2 ping/telnet problems with active ppp

RedHat 7.2 ping/telnet problems with active ppp

Post by GEDEO » Thu, 11 Apr 2002 22:51:30



I don't understand what I am doing wrong? I'm hoping one of you guru's can
help.
I can dial out to an IBM RS6000 AIX 4.3 and connect with ppp from my RedHat 7.2
box using wv_dial.  Netstat -rn looks ok to me - but I cannot PING - it is
always a 100% loss.  If I turn on telnet in system services, etc, sometimes I
can get a login screen - logon and then it hangs!
I do have a network card for my home network ( windows98, linux5.2 and
linux7.2).  ( I had everything working on linux 5.2 but I'll be darned if I
cannot get it to work on 7.2 )  - getting very frustrated with RedHat 7.2!!!!
Thanks - so much - in advance!!!!  
I also need to get my SCSI tape drive working - maybe someone can point me in
the right direction for solving this issue too!!!!
Here is some logs - maybe someone can spot something I don't have set up right!
