I have a rather strange problem:
I have a Intel RH5.1 box with a 3com Impact ISDN 'modem' attached
to com1. I am trying to establish a connection with an Ascend Pipeline50
ISDN router, which is set to use PAP authentication.
When I try to manually bring up the ppp interface, the 3com
dials, connects, and then does nothing (as told by /var/log/messages).
I am running KDE, and tried setting up the PPP connection using
the 'KPPP' tool in KDE. At first, I had the same problems as I did when I
attempted manually connecting. I was fiddling with the settiongs and
tried setting the password authentication format to CHAP from its
previous setting of PAP. The connection then worked!!!!
I am positive the Ascend is configured to use PAP and not CHAP.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to why I might not be able to
connect? I am a bit new to this PAP/CHAP stuff, so I am not sure what
info to offer, so feel free to ask for more info if you can help.
Thanks in advance!
