"LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests" --- whose fault?

Post by Joel M. Hoffm » Thu, 21 Dec 1995 04:00:00

More often than not, I get the following when trying to establish a
PPP connection:

         LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests

Is this a problem on my end or the ISP's end?

1. Rehat 4.0 ppp: "LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests"

I'm recently done a fresh install of Redhat 4.0 and am try to
configure ppp to dial my ISP.  I've read posts regarding this error
that point to the ISP as the cause, but there are users on my provider
successfully connecting with pppd under Redhat (I've asked them but
haven't found my answer).  Anyways, It seems like I'm sending my
username/password successfully, but I'm getting a "timeout sending
Config-Requests" error on completion of my script.  

Anyone seen a similar error or have any advice on how to successfully

My /etc/ppp/options -
connect /etc/ppp/chat
bsdcomp 9,15
mru 296

/etc/ppp/chat -
/usr/sbin/chat -v "" ATDT$NUM ortmaster "" ogin: $USER word: $PASS

Expecting "ortmaster" is strange, but it seems to be the only way I
can get to the authentification step without an alarm.  Also waiting
for the 180 outputs the "Packet mode enabled" line in
/var/log/messages - this *seems* to be a good thing and I hoped it
would make good evidence without interfering with the logon process.
I get the same error without waiting for it.

Anyhoo, here's the result from /var/log/messages -
