"LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests" Problem????

Post by Mar » Thu, 18 Sep 2003 04:49:08



Hi,

I'm trying to set up a DSL connection in my linux (suse 7.1, kernel
2.4.28, ISP:Bluewin.ch) with a speedtouch usb modem.

My problem is when I try:

"pppd call adsl &"  which is suppose to start my DSL connection I've
got the following message: "LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests"

What the hell is that and how do I fix it???

Here is a snap shot of the logs...

No one is answering from the remote side.

Make sure that your provider really uses PPPoA (and not PPPoE).

If it is PPPoA then check whether you have configured the
correct VPI/VCI in the modem (if this is possible). If you
can configure the encapsulation on the VC, check that it is
also correct (VC mux'ed or LLC/SNAP encapsulated) according
to the ISPs requirements.

Check also whether your DSL connection is operational (normally
a green LED should indicate this on the modem).

BTW: Don't multi-post use cross-posting instead.

Ciao, Horst

"LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests" Problem????

If Horst's suggestions don't work (ie you have tried the exact settins that
your ISP suggested) change just VCMux to LLC and see if that helps.
I know a few people who have DLink modems that have been working fine for
months using VCMux.  Then one day they cannot connect.  Changing to LLC
fixed the problem.
Neither BT or the ISPs will claim responsibility, but I believe BT are at
fault

Could you tell us what you found, and if/how you resolved your problem?

Many thanks

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
connect?

Thanks,
Pat Dalzell

My /etc/ppp/options -
connect /etc/ppp/chat
/dev/cua2
bsdcomp 9,15
mru 296
crtscts
defaultroute
lock
modem
noipdefault
passive

/etc/ppp/chat -
#!/bin/sh
NUM=1111111
USER=patd
PASS=password
/usr/sbin/chat -v "" ATDT$NUM ortmaster "" ogin: $USER word: $PASS
180

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 -
