PPP's chat will sleep for about 1 minute b4 redial

Post by Stanley Min Loong Se » Sat, 18 Mar 1995 00:23:19

I have a problem with my PPP's chat.
I got the PPP running fine with an older version but after my ppp server
upgraded their version, I can't get the old pppd to run, so I use the
version pppd-2.1.2b

I've encountered the following problem :
If i run the ppp script for the first time, the chat program will
dial immediately, but after a hangup, I have to wait for about 1-1 1/2 mins
b4 the chat program dials... I can see the pppd process running but I
won't see the chat program running b4 1 min or so....

Does the chat program have a wait or sleep time b4 it dials...

I am using the script provided in the PPP-howto file like below:

pppd connect 'chat -v -t 30 ABORT BUSY "" ATZ OK ATDTXXXXXX CONNECT "" "name>"
username "word>" password "" ` \
/dev/cua0 57600 modem crtscts modem nodefaultip defaultroute :xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Can anyone gives me some idea on how to solve this problem...

My pppd ver 1.3 was running fine before this....

thank you

1. PPP/CHAT: chat won't chat with modem, why?

I've been trying to get a dynamic IP connection to work via ppp, and I
think I've narrowed the problem down to the chat program.  chat
doesn't seem to be getting any responses from the modem.  I've been
trying to figure out what's going on by running chat from the command
line (can this work?), but no luck.  For example,

gives the following error messages:

Mar  9 11:43:49 rezkbox chat[1285]: timeout set to 3 seconds
Mar  9 11:43:49 rezkbox chat[1285]: send (^MAT^M^M)
Mar  9 11:43:49 rezkbox chat[1285]: expect (OK)
Mar  9 11:43:52 rezkbox chat[1285]: alarm
Mar  9 11:43:52 rezkbox chat[1285]: send (+++)
Mar  9 11:43:52 rezkbox chat[1285]: expect (OK)
Mar  9 11:43:55 rezkbox chat[1285]: alarm
Mar  9 11:43:55 rezkbox chat[1285]: Failed

I really don't know what's going on.  I'm also a bit confused about
the chat program; it's supposed to communicate with the modem, but how
does it even know which serial port the modem is on?

Any ideas?
