I'm running Redhat 4.2 and trying to dial my ISP and connect using ppp.
I added kdebug 25 to the /etc/ppp/options file, so that I get an output log of all of the characters
going through the serial port. I see that I make the connection successfully, and data gets
transferred both ways. At some point, I get "ppp_tty_read: no data (EAGAIN)". After several of
these (these are separated by some transmits), I get "IPCP: timeout sending Config-Requests". When
I do an ifconfig, I dont see the ppp0 entry, and if I try to do an ftp, I get "network unreachable"
I understand that after the physical connection is made, the LCP (link layer protocol is set up),
and then the IPCP (ip protocol) is set up. I never get the LCP messages.
I believe that my ISP is waiting for me to send more information after I send my login and password.
Under Windows, I use a pop-up terminal. After entering the login and password, I must close the
pop-up window, which then establishes the connection and starts the ppp server at the ISP. I don't
know how to do the equivalent operation using the chat script. How do I start the ppp server at the
ISP ("close the pop-up terminal") after sending the login and password? In my log file I see that
everything is correct up to the point I finish entering these...but I never get past this.
Thanks in advance for your help.
