pppd dies unexpectedly ??

Post by Howard Sope » Mon, 01 Mar 1999 04:00:00

Hope someone can point me in the right direction as this is driving me
quietly crazy !

Having attempted to use the HOWTO docs and set up ppp I got stuck as pppd
simple would not establish a connection.
Gave up and downloaded ezppp.  This seemed very easy to set up and run.
Have cleared out /etc/ppp/options as instructed, set up the account details
( I am *trying* to connect to * net )
So we have *.net as domain, as the nameservers.

Have added username and remotehost bitz for PAP as in instructions.

Fire it up - connects ... and dies.
Get a message on console "pppd really died" !!

Also get the following in /var/log/message :
Feb 27 20:29:35 Linux pppd[1309]: pppd 2.3.3 started by root, uid 0
Feb 27 20:29:35 Linux pppd[1309]: Using interface ppp0
Feb 27 20:29:35 Linux pppd[1309]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/cua1
Feb 27 20:29:37 Linux pppd[1309]: Modem hangup
Feb 27 20:29:37 Linux pppd[1309]: Connection terminated.
Feb 27 20:29:38 Linux pppd[1309]: Exit.

Wondrous !
What is going wrong ???

1. Arrrgghh pppd dies unexpectedly

I am running SuSE 5.3 and am Using the kppp package to connect to the
internet, (works on my Red-Hat box just fine)  this is a clean install
of Suse .  When I try to dial, it dials out , connects then gives me
error message "pppd Deamon died unexpectedly"  I am connecting to an NT
server (it's what my ISP uses) so I set it for chap authentication.
like I said, it works great on my Red Hat box, but my Suse box just sits
