After digging through a lot of HOWTO's, FAQ's, PPP-tip, man-pages and
lists, I was able (after a while) in setting up a working PPP-connection.
Nevertheless, I get mostly (NOT ALWAYS) following message in the log of pppd
Dec 22 15:07:06 localhost pppd: Using interface ppp0
Dec 22 15:07:06 localhost pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
Dec 22 15:07:10 localhost pppd: Unknown protocol (0x8029) received <-- message
Dec 22 15:07:13 localhost pppd: local IP address x.x.x.x
Dec 22 15:07:13 localhost pppd: remote IP address y.y.y.y
The logical questions here are:
- does it say something special, and if so,
- do I have to worry about it ?
The PPP-FAQ explains other unknown protocols, messaged in the same way, but this one was not adressed.
PPP-version: 2.2.0, RedHat 4.0.
BTW: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of You!
