I recently upgradet to the 2.0.18 kernel from 1.2.13, and decided to
switch from using diald to the kerneld-based dial-on-demand solution
documented in the kerneld READMEs.
Most of the time, my connections come up OK (except for some
irrelevant rumbles that I suspect are due to a misconfiguration
on my ISP's side), but when I try starting ncftp from the command
line, I get this:
NcFTP: nic.funet.fi (101): Network is unreachable
NcFTP 1.9.4 (April 15, 1995) by Mike Gleason, NCEMRSoft.
Tip: If you don't want a .ncrecent file in your home directory, put
command '#unset recent-list' in your .ncftprc file.
then, after some seconds, my modem starts dialling and a PPP
connection gets established. To me, it looks like ncftp times
out immediately, but kerneld processes the package anyway.
Is it possible to devise a workaround for this?
