DIP keeps dropping connection...

Post by Chris Anders » Wed, 10 Aug 1994 12:52:45

Can anyone give me an idea why dip might keep dropping my connection for
no apparant reason?

I have used dip for almost 6 mo. with kernel 0.99.13 and the other day I
upgraded to slackware 2.0 (kernel 1.0.9) and now it seems to randomly
drop carrier after around 20 mins...

Slackware came with dip-3.3.7-uri, but I recomplied dip-3.3.7-strauss
because that is the one that I was using with the old kernel and it
supports the 'call' command..

Anyhow, if anyone can point me to where the problem could be, I would be
VERY APPRECIATIVE because it is kind of a pain loosing carrier all the

Thanks in advance..

(OH, please send responces via email.. thanks)

1. dip Keeps dropping connection! Help!

 I use dip to start up slip/ppp connections to our network here at school, and
 under high demand, such as an ftp session and netscape, or 2 ftp sessions,
 the line drops.  I have a SPortster 28800 V.FC modem, but it also happened
 when I had a Zoom 14400.  But a friend of mine has a Sportster 28800 and his
 never drops.  I'm trying some different initialization strings now, but in
 the event that this doesn't help, or if anyone knows of any commands I should
 give the modem, please give me a hand.  Also, I've never connected at higher
 than 14400, is there something I can do about this assuming my phone line is
 OK and my ISP is capable?  Thanks a lot...
