dialup timeout and leafnode problem

dialup timeout and leafnode problem

Post by John Thomps » Thu, 20 Aug 1998 04:00:00

I am attempting to set up linux to dial up my ISP, download news
and mail and then disconnect.  I am presently trying to get
leafnode to work to fetch the news. No joy so far; it keeps
dying on me leaving things like this in /var/log/messages:

Aug 18 10:52:12 rhino_house leafnode[420]: rereading
Aug 18 10:52:38 rhino_house leafnode[424]: rereading
Aug 18 10:52:38 rhino_house leafnode[424]: can't stat
o: No such file or directory
Aug 18 10:52:38 rhino_house leafnode[424]: rereading
Aug 18 10:52:52 rhino_house leafnode[424]: quit

I am assuming I will overcome this eventually.  In the meantime,
is there some program that can monitor the connection and kill it
after a specified length of idle time?  My present OS/2 setup
runs nicely unattended but the dialer program provides this
"timeout" function.  I hope there is something similar for

Hi, what exactly is the problem shown below in the entries from
/var/log/messages? Is it a problem on my end or the ISP end? I'm dialing out
to an ISP server using PAP.  The modem (USR v.90) initializes and dials
fine, but disconnects after a minute or so. Any suggestion would be great.
