Trying to connect to AT&T's worldnet using Linux kernel 2.0.0 and
ppp-2.2.0f. This configuration works fine with my interramp account
using PAP. I've followed the directions in the instructions at
http://www.toppig.com/wurd/linux.html and according to my debug and
syslog files I am successfully connecting. The netstat and ifconfig
commands show the assigned IP address and gateway info, just like on the
BUT, a ping to the outside world drops the line almost immediately, and
if I do nothing, the line drops after 60 seconds (exactly). The debug
files shows an LCP termination request received from the peer, followed
by a TermAcq sent.
Anyone else had this problem? How do I keep the connection up?
