1. PPP connection problems (Bad configure-nak/rej:)
Now that I've managed to get my sound card out of the way of my modem, I'm
trying to get ppp dial-up working.
I followed the instructions from my ISP for Linux PPP configuration and
hit the activate button.
It dialed and I could hear the modems negotiating the connection, but
the PPP link never came up.
Here's an extract from /var/log/messages:

I assume that the "bad configure-nak/rej:" message is the culprit, but I
haven't the foggiest idea of what it means or what to do.
I've been looking in the archives, but haven't found anything pertinent
A clue would be vastly appreciated!
P.S. My address is actually replyable. Feel free to answer in the group
or by e-mail, but please don't do both.
