I am connected vi World net now. My /etc/ppp/chap-secrets looks like:

*       *       my_painfully_long_password

Also in the /etc/ppp/options file I have a line like:

name my_painfully_long_user_id

Hope this helps.


1. ppp & chat scripts for AT&T's worldnet service???


I am able to dial up to my ISP (AT&T's worldnet) but I have problems
starting my ppp & chat scripts. (My kernel is compiled with pppd
support). I suspect that my login and password pair is not get accepted.
Note that I can connect fine  through NT. I am new to linux so I don't
really know how to troubleshoot things.

I would greatly appreciate if someone could email me his ppp and chat
scripts for connecting to AT&T worldnet or any other ISP. Should I exit
minicom without reseting the modem before I execute the scripts? I am
using RH linux 4.2.

Thanks a lot,
Makis Gaitanidis
