Chat woes!

Post by Edward T. Ki » Thu, 25 Jul 1996 04:00:00



I've switched ISPs and my new provider doesn't use login and password
but instead uses pap verification.  This has me stumped.  Help please!
I'm tired of just using Windows!

I suggest going to the Sunsite ftp site (ftp.sunsite.unc.edu) or your favorite
mirror (try ftp.cdrom.com if sunsite itself is busy) and looking in the
pub/Linux/doc directory hierarchy for a document called ISP-HOWTO. It
gives step-by-step directions for handling PAP, CHAP, etc. I haven't tried it
myself, since my ISP doesn't use them, but it might get you started.
Good luck.

Oopsie. :)

mercury:~$ host ftp.sunsite.unc.edu
Host not found.
mercury:~$ host sunsite.unc.edu
sunsite.unc.edu has address 152.2.254.81

My personal favorite is ftp.cc.gatech.edu.

Why do I run Linux? Because rebooting is for hardware upgrades.

You might need to check the man pages since my memory is not too good,
but as I recall, there is a file called pap-secrets in which you
put things like your account name, provider, or/and password.

I recall a textfile with three columns: logonname, a star, and password
in some order.

Sorry I can't be of more help.  Surely some of the old-time users
can fill in the missing details

1. Chat woes

Hi, I'm trying to setup ppp to access an ISP on my stand-alone machine.  But
when I try to run chat it appears not to talk to the modem.  I'm using the
following script which I found in the /etc/ppp directory

#!/bin/sh
exec chat -v                                            \
        TIMEOUT         3                               \
        ABORT           '\nBUSY\r'                      \
        ABORT           '\nNO ANSWER\r'         \
        ABORT           '\nRINGING\r\n\r\nRINGING\r'    \
        ''              \rAT                            \
        'OK-+++\c-OK'   ATH0                            \
        TIMEOUT         30                              \
        OK              ATDT94614000                    \
        CONNECT         ''                              \
        ogin:--ogin:    *mylogin*                       \
        assword:        *mypassword*

When I run this I see
rAT  which then gets replaced with
+++  and then the script exits.  It creates a login_errors file but it's empty.
I'm using a KTX 28.8 modem on Com4 which is working fine from windows.  I
installed the modem on Com4 using the Setup utility so I think that's ok.  Does
anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks
