PPP dialup question

Post by Marquis de carvdaw » Mon, 10 Aug 1998 04:00:00

Wow, look at all of the PPP questions...

Okay, I have RH 5.1, and things are setup fine...kernel is compiled to
ppp, and I am trying to use netcfg to dial into my ISP (who is running a
PPPd).  My ISP says to enable PAP.

I tried to dial in and couldn't get anything with route -n or ifconfig
ppp0.  I checked
/var/log/messages, and saw that when the server is asking for the login,
my box is
sending "115200" for some reason.

Could someone give some advice to a new Linux user?  I have the HOWTO on

PPP and ISP dial up, but, well, things should be easier than




1. reconnecting ppp dialup -- question from RIP

Does anyone out there know how to setup ppp so that it will redial the
number if disconnected and also set this dialup to start automactically upon
bootup. I know how to do this through the control panel in X but I can't
stand X and want to get rid of it and just use linux. Anyone know how to do
this or where information about something like this can be found???
