ppp will not change to "PPP" after connection/authentication???

Post by Nathan S. Zorne » Thu, 18 Sep 1997 04:00:00



This is my first post to a "BSD" list so please, lotuses, bear with
me;)  I have been trying for several weeks to get my 2.2.2-Release to
obtain a connection to an ISP by dialing out with a USR 33.6 Ext.
modem.  I am at the point where I get past authentication but I do not
seem to have a complete connection.  When I pull out my ethernet cable I
do not see the modem pick up the slack and start assuming the packet
transfers.  When I enter ppp like this: ppp ON touring>dial flashnet
             "                       > Phone:?????????
             "                       >Dial OK!
             "                       >Login OK!
             "                       >Packet Mode

I have "rtfm" and I do see that the PPP must be in caps or the transfer
of data will not succeed.  Even if I do the login through "term" I still
get an IP and what not but no transfer of data.  Anyone please help me
on this nightmare.

This small issue is the only thing keepin me from going to BSD at the
home.

Unless you've got dynamic routing, it will not do that.
I suppose you could impliment dynamic routing, but that would be silly.

so I assume you've set the default route to be through your ppp?
there is a place to add "add 0 0 HISADDR" in ppp.linkup to do it
automatically...

I hope that sig is a joke...
Its very scary to see an admin who doesn't know about default routes.
Especially one from a large ISP... (nothing personal)

Actually,  no it isn't a joke.  Furthermore,  no, I do not take it personally
that you question it either.  You may, if you wish, judge my knowledge by my
questions but why????  I think you and I both know that one cannot judge in
that manner and get a "accurate" viewpoint.  Anyways,  yes I have the
ppp.linkup file it looks similar to what you typed below.   Why is it "silly"
to impliment dynamic routing?  Still, have we got the answer to my question.
Is the problem the fact that I may not have dynamic routing enabled.  Would
that be something to enable in "rc.conf?"  Or how,

I do know what a default route is but the logistics of how it works with ppp I
am unclear on.Nathan

I had this happen to me once before (a long time ago) and if I remember
right, I had to set TCP_EXTENSION=NO in the rc.conf file (it defaults to
ON).   Try that and see if it helps.

Preceeded by a "delete ALL" of course.  If you've already got a
default route through a NIC, it must be deleted before adding a
different default.

So, once you've got to the "PPP ON ...>" prompt, type

  delete ALL
  add 0 0 HISADDR

If this still doesn't work, post the output of "netstat -rn".
You should be seeing something like:

where, in my case, all the 10's are on the local LAN, and the "default"
points to the address on the other end of the tun device.
