Well , try another method of using PPP. Simply connect using minicom ,
after You are
connected ( I mean after login to Your ISP provider) , say exec PPP
(sometimes You do not
have to do it, namely sometimes Your ISP provider makes it automatically),
or so to start PPP
on provider site, You should see some funny hex codes ( if You see it it
means it is done) as
a result. At this moment ( after seeing these hex codes) leave minicom with
CTRL A Q ( it means without reset). Then say : pppd /dev/modem . Check
with ifconfig if ppp0 is up, and eventually
check with ping the connection with provider. Say plog to see last pppd
All above is valid for Debian 1.2.
