Almost PPP-connected??

Post by George Lampk » Tue, 12 Jan 1999 04:00:00



Running Redhat 5.2 and using "ppp-on" and "ppp-on-dialer" to make PPP
connection to my ISP. THe modem dials, connects, and receives my login
and password. It establishes a connection but shuts down almost
immediately. The last lines in /var/log/messages are:

Jan 11 14:31:52 localhost pppd[835]: Serial connection established.
Jan 11 14:31:53 localhost pppd[835]: Using interface ppp0
Jan 11 14:31:53 localhost pppd[835]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/cua2
Jan 11 14:31:56 localhost pppd[835]: Serial line is looped back.
Jan 11 14:31:56 localhost pppd[835]: Connection terminated.
Jan 11 14:31:57 localhost pppd[835]: Exit.
Jan 11 14:33:29 localhost kernel: PPP: ppp line discipline successfully
unregistered

WHAT HAPPENED!

Hard to say, it could be a misconfigured chat script or maybe you need
PAP or CHAP authentication.  Yes, your login and password may be accepted
and you still need PAP or CHAP - although usually without implementing
the login/password part of the chat script.

To check on whether there are PAP or CHAP authenication requests from
the ISP use the pppd debug option and look in /var/log/debug (usually).
If there is no file or no messages, then put

*.=debug                                        /usr/log/debug

in /etc/syslog.conf and try again.

If there is no sign of such an authentication request then look for
something wrong in the ppp-on and ppp-on-dialer scripts.  Post them if
you need to do so.

Hi,
I had the same problem. I installed KDE and used thier kpppd program, which is
a lot easier to use then scripts. Try to change to PAP in you confs.

1. PPP almost connects.....

Red HAt 4.2, kernel 2.0.30:

Using ezppp1.0b9 to set up my first ppp connection.  I connect to the
ISP (ATT Worldnet) and it prompts me for a username.

When I enter it, It spit back garbage (random jibberish characters) and
never asks me for a password.  Needless to say, I can't get connected.

Is there a certain file I need to modify?  Anyone with experience with
ezppp and/or att worldnet, or just ppp in general that knows what's
wrong, please reply via email or usenet.

thanks in advance
Brian
