It appears that kppp is confused.

Best guess, the initial LCP request is repeated 10 times at intervals
of 3 seconds with no response forthcoming and pppd terminated.  LCP is
short for "Link Control Protocol" which is used to negotiate certain
properties of a PPP link.  This kind of "timeout" occurs when one side
or the other doesn't receive what is sent to it or what it receives
is broken in transit.  Adding "debug" to /etc/ppp/options will likely
result in a log showing the LCP requests.

There are various things that might cause this to happen, mostly
at the serial/modem level.  Unfortunately I know little about kppp
except the usual for such programs:  when it works it's easy to use
and when it doesn't it's hard to debug.

Quote:>   what should I do?

Provide more information.  Does the modem appear to dial out and
connect?  Is the number dialed correct? :)  Is it a real modem or
a winmodem? (Good luck if it's a winmodem)  Is /dev/ttyS3 correctly
configured for the actual UART, port number, and IRQ of the serial
device? (setserial -bg /dev/ttyS3, compare to serial device specs)

Configure kppp to log the modem initialization and the modem's line
negotiations if possible.  Post.

Here is a logging recipe for pppd and chat (the program for making
the serial connection that comes with pppd).  Dunno about kppp.

Add the line

daemon.*;local2.*                              /var/log/ppp.log

to /etc/syslog.conf, do "killall -HUP syslogd" to get syslogd to reread
that file, and temporary add the pppd option "debug" to /etc/ppp/options.
Then try to make a connection and post the resulting log file.

1. Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device

I having a problem getting my modem working on my Presario 1215 US.

Kppp finds my modem, dials my isp, Sends my logon, then hangs after
requesting a password.
Pressing ctrl alt F1 shows the following messages:

Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device
Kernel supports pppd alright.

The modem is an ActionTec PCMCIA modem that works fine in other linux
laptops.  

My PCMCIA network card works fine.

The only mention of PPP in dmesg:

PPP BSD Compression module registered
PPP Deflate Compression module registered

When I try to add the ppp0 interface using netcfg, ppp in not included in
the interface type choices.

How can I get this modem to work on this laptop?
