Weird PPP Problems

Post by Jesse Rosenberge » Wed, 11 Feb 1998 04:00:00



okay, I don't know what's going on with this but I am having problems
with my ppp connection...I have a modem on  COM4 IRQ 9 and I have the
modem line in the ppp.conf file set at /dev/cuaa3...I can access the
modem fine through term but when I load ppp:
  # ppp
and then type:
  dial att
it just does this:

Dial Attempt 1 of 1
dial OK!
login OK!
ppp ON worldnet>packet mode
ppp ON worldnet>

does any body know what this means?  I looks like it's connected
okay...but it doesn't connect.  My ppp.conf file looks like this:

default:
 set device /dev/cuaa3
 set speed 115200
 set redial 10.2 4
 set reconnect 3 4
 allow users
 enable lqr
 accept lqr
 set dial "ABORT BUSY ABORT NO\\sCARRIER TIMEOUT 5 \"\" ATZ OK-AT-OK
\\dATDT\\T TIMEOUT 60 CONNECT"
att:
 set phone 4449999
 accept chap
 deny pap
 set server 3000
 set authname mylongstupidattloginnamehere
 set authkey myimpossibletorememberattpassword
 set openmode active
 set ifaddr 0 0
 set timeout 143900
 delete ALL
 add 0 0 HISADDR

### END OF PPP.CONF (THIS LINE IS NOT IN THE FILE)
Here is what my resolv.conf looks like:

nameserver 204.127.160.1
nameserver 204.127.129.1
nameserver 204.127.129.2

My ppp.linkup looks like:

MYADDR:
 delete ALL
 add 0 0 HISADDR

That's it...anything i'm forgetting, doing wrong, or anything of the
sort...I'd appreciate ANY help you can provide.  Thanks in advance.

Have you tried to negotiate the PPP connection manually?  What happens
when you "show route" or "show log"?

Hmmmm.... Looks suspiciously like my config file.  ;-) That should work
OK when dialing into ATT worldnet (where I assume you're dialing into
because of the label).  Have you tried a different modem?  This modem
isn't a Winmodem or el-cheapo Zoom is it?  Some of the cheap Zooms leave
quite a bit of v.42 to be processed in the driver and FreeBSD doesn't
support this.  Sometimes you can tell if you get a bunch of strange
looking "noise" characters spit out at you immediately after you connect
to a site.  That's a bad sign.

change MYADDR to att in the ppp.linkup file as it says
to in http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/handbook179.html#417

should read:

att:
 delete ALL
 add 0 0 HISADDR

Hope this helps,
Peter

I'd put my money on your authentication name or key being wrong.

``packet mode'' is entered once the dial script has succeeded.  You
get a `PPP' prompt when IPCP comes up.  Authentication happens in
between.

Check your logs (see http://www.FreeBSD.org/FAQ/userppp.html).

That could be...but the modem never picks up the line...I watch the
status indicator on the line, and it never does anything.  If I use
"term" I can access it no prob.  So authentication is not the problem at
this point.

I would try using a different IRQ

alot of funky problems like this can be solved by staying away from
the 2/9 mess...

This looks suspiciously like a problem I was having when my ISP
(sonic.net) added some Computone IntelliServer terminal servers.  It was
like roulette - if I got a Livingston PortMaster everything worked
fine, if I got the "Intelli"Server it sort of came up and then sort of
went away.  It might work one time in ten.

Although I spent a *lot* of time going over log files for the connection,
it was never quite clear what was happening.

Get the latest version of user-mode PPP and then try:
    set log Phase Chat Connect Carrier LCP IPCP CCP tun command
and see if you get any enlightenment.

They have had so many customers who have had problems with the
IntelliServers they have sworn to never by another one.

    Good Luck,
    Peter

Ok then, I'll change my bet :-)

When you `show modem', does it show the correct dial & login scripts ?
Maybe you've got some unbalanced quotes ?

You can also `set log chat carrier link connect lcp ipcp' and see what's
actually going on in your log file.

1. Weird PPP problems

I've been trying to configure PPP for about two days and can't quite
seem to get the two machines talking.  I'm using kernel V1.3.71 and
PPP V2.2.0.   I've compiled the kernel with PPP (in the kernel, not
a module) and followed the directions that came with PPP to configure
it.  Below is what a log of what happens when I attemt to start a PPP
connection.

Mar 12 10:37:48 tdc chat[141]: choice -- got it
Mar 12 10:37:48 tdc chat[141]: send (4^M)
Mar 12 10:37:49 tdc pppd[140]: Serial connection established
Mar 12 10:37:49 tdc pppd[140]: Using interface ppp0
Mar 12 10:37:49 tdc pppd[140]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/cua1
Mar 12 10:37:50 tdc pppd[140]: sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <mru 1500>
<asyncmap 0x0> magic<0x3c882bf> <pcomp> <accomp>]
Mar 12 10:37:50 tdc pppd[140]: revd [LCP ConfAck id=0x1 <mru 1500>
<asyncmap 0x0> magic<0x3c882bf> <pcomp> <accomp>]
Mar 12 10:37:52 tdc pppd[140]: rcvd [LCP ConfReq id=0x2 <asyncmap 0x0>
<auth pap> <magic 0x71e32f6d> <pcomp> <accomp>]
Mar 12 10:37:52 tdc pppd[140]: sent [LCP ConfRej id=0x2 <auth pap>]
Mar 12 10:37:53 tdc pppd[140]: rcvd [LCP ConfReq id=0x3 <asyncmap 0x0>
<auth pap> <magic 0x84af3bdf> <pcomp> <auth pap>
Mar 12 10:37:53 tdc pppd[140]: sent [LCP ConfRej id=0x3 <auth pap>]
Mar 12 10:37:53 tdc pppd[140]: rcvd [LCP ConfReq id=0x4 <asyncmap 0x0>
<auth pap> <magic 0x80272b69> <pcomp> <accomp>]

And from there it gets in an endless loop of ConfRej and ConfReq with the
only things changing in the lines being the id #'s and the magic #'s.  Can
someone tell me what all this means and what the problem might be?

Thanks,
James
