I am having trouble running PPP, and would greatly appreciate some
advice. I can ping remote systems, and remote systems can ping me. I
can run nslookup as well and resolve names. However, when I try to
run telnet, I get "connection established", but no "login: " prompt.
I get similar results with all other apps - they get the original
connection established, but that's the end of the story. I see no
error messages on remote machines. I *do* see a couple of strange
entries in the syslog.err file when PPP first comes up (unrecognized
protocol "7070" and another high number), but no errors at the time of
Can anyone suggest a course of action? I consider myself fairly
network savvy (although PPP ignorant), but don't know how to proceed
at this point. Turning up debugging levels in pppd doesn't bring out
any new information.
I am running the 1.1.49 Linux kernel, ppp-2.1.2a, and network
applications from some Yggdrasil release (I forget the number, it's a
few months old).
If anyone has any suggestions, please email them to me:
