ppp 2.4.0 & 2.4.0-test11 kernel

ppp 2.4.0 & 2.4.0-test11 kernel

Post by The infamous » Wed, 29 Nov 2000 04:00:00



Hi:

I have;

(1) two kernels "2.2.17" & "2.4.0-test11" - both configured relatively the
same.

(2) ppp-2.4.0 downloaded and built fresh today.

(3) functioning ppp /etc/options and /etc/pppscript files.

(4) same machine, same modem, same telephone line.

With 2.2.17 kernel with built in ppp and compression I am able to dialup my
ISP, connect, establish a serial connection, ppp establishes a link and I
start browsing the 'Net. Time online, 90 minute (ISP) limit.

With 2.4.0-test11 kernel with built in ppp and compression I am able to
dialup my ISP, connect, establish a serial connection, ppp immediately
issues a SIGHUP and the modem hangs up - the end. Time online, 0 sec.

If I initiate the connection in minicom and start pppd, it immediately hangs
up the modem. Works fine with 2.2.17 kernel.

I can run a shell session no problem with 2.2.4-test11 - it is definately a
PPP issue.

Anybody have pppd (2.4.0) working in 2.2.4-test11 kernel?

Anybody?

Thanks in advance.

Brian

I am running 2.4.0 in kernel 2.4-test8 without a problem, I will
upgrade to test11 and let you know whether I get the same
problem ...

Hi Brien:

That's great!

Could you post your /etc/ppp/options file (or send it to me) to review?

Do you remember having to do anything different?

Best regards,

Brian

Try read the documentation included in the kernel source.
There are instructions there to set-up ppp specific into your
modules.conf file.

I got this problem before when I compiled a fresh kernel from
2.4.0-test9.

Good Luck,
-Paul

Most of this was done automatically by PPPSetup when I upgraded
to Slack7.1. The modem, a 56k Courier, is on Com 2.

I just followed the instructions that came in the ppp tarball.

Hope this helps.

The 2.3+ kernels require two modules for an asynchronous connection,
ppp_generic.o and ppp_async.o, or the equivalent compiled into the
kernel.  Do you have both in the kernel and/or loaded?

Not me, I try to avoid the bleeding edge.  So consider this as a WAG.

Hello!

sometimes my freebsd box (that i use as firewall in my little lan) became stalled.
no data arrive and with ping IP i get error about some buffers full.
in ppp.log i see a lot of:
Jun 24 22:45:39 firewall ppp[66]: tun0: Phase: Clearing choked output queue

i search with google on newsgroups but i don't find nothing that work :)

i put some info on the configuration, because i read a lot of question about this parameters :)
