Need help with Alcatel USB + Red Hat Linux 7.2

Post by Mik » Sat, 27 Apr 2002 23:11:49



Hello people

I'm completely lost with my Alcatel USB on a Red Hat 7.2 Linux system.
I followed the HOWTO for the installation of the driver from http://linux-
usb.sourceforge.net/SpeedTouch/
I'm using stock 2.4.18 kernel, that's supposed to have the needed USB and
ATM support, and the beta2 PPP over ATM daemon.
I followed the HOWTO exactly, and reached the point of having a ppp0
interface, with correct IP addresses assigned both for local address and
remote address:

ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
          inet addr:194.xx.yy.zz  P-t-P:194.xx.yy.zz  Mask:255.255.255.255
          UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:11 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:14 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
          RX bytes:2512 (2.4 Kb)  TX bytes:674 (674.0 b)

I have a default route to ppp0
But, when I tried a ping like:

        # ping -n { some existing IP address }

I got absolutely no answer.
After doing 'pppd', /var/log/messages show:

Apr 26 11:06:33 gateway pppd[1363]: Plugin /usr/lib/pppd/plugins/pppoatm.so
loaded.
Apr 26 11:06:33 gateway pppd[1363]: PPPoATM plugin_init

Apr 26 11:06:35 gateway pppd[1364]: Unsupported protocol 0x2145 received

I don't undestand the meaning of the last message.
If it helps, this is my /etc/ppp/options:

lock
defaultroute
noipdefault
noauth
passive
asyncmap 0
lcp-echo-interval 2
lcp-echo-failure 7
name {my user here}
user {my user here}
plugin /usr/lib/pppd/plugins/pppoatm.so
8.35
debug

The value 8.35 is OK for my provider.

Any help is appreciated!
