<Silent> Connection via Redat 4.1 PPP

Post by Mark Holdernes » Mon, 26 May 1997 04:00:00



Having installed Redhat 4.1 nad setting up my dialup connection via the
network configuration program under X, When I connect to my ISP there is
no feedback as to how far the login process via PPP has got. I.e the
modem messages are not displayed - e.g. Connect 33600 or any of the
messages to let me know when the connection has been established.

Is there anyway to the logon messages to be displayed anywhere so I know
when I can start using the connection?

Try using XISP.  While it is setting up the ppp link, it
has a status window that shows the login process. Also, if
your modem returns the line connect speed, it will be displayed
in the status box. Current verision is 1.9 at Sunsite.

No experience with RedHat, but at a guess I would say it probably drives a
standard pppd with an X interface.

If so, pppd probably uses chat to connect, if you can find some way of
executing chat with the -v flag, it will log all received text to the syslog.

If there is a /etc/ppp dir, you'll probably find the files you need to alter in
there. My system uses the #! hack in a file called ppp-on-dialer. All I would
have to do is add -v to the end of the first line of this (after #! chat).

You can also use EzPPP which is a nice GUI tool that allows users other
than root to launch their PPP connection.  Click on debug and you can
watch the connection being made.  After the timer starts, you are
connected.  Alternatively, if don't want to use a GUI, go to one of the
virtual consoles as root and type "ifconfig" and look for ppp0 to come
up (I'm assuming that you only have one PPP connection).

Thanks,
I have now got XISP up and running and it's working great.

Assuming you're using 'chat' to connect, add "-v" and it will log everything
to /var/log/messages.

(RTFM: "man chat")
