1. PPP-Setup util & SuSE distro.
Confused is an understatement in my situation here trying to get a PPP
connection that sets up in 15 minutes in win95 by supplying the DNS
Primary + mail + news #s .
This is for a single user, me !
My ISP asks for :
Login (my username)
Password (my password)
just to show that it is not Chap or pap .
trouble is that I was frustated by failers to get PPP working , so
after reading this newsgroup , I decided to try the PPPSetup program
that is often recomended .
Everything worked as expected , but scripts still fail .
here is a readout from debug err messages :
Dec 6 02:37:26 Basslake pppd: pppd 2.2.0 started by root, uid 0
Dec 6 02:37:27 Basslake chat: timeout set to 10 seconds

Dec 6 02:37:28 Basslake chat: expect (OK)
Dec 6 02:37:38 Basslake chat: alarm ????What alarm
Dec 6 02:37:38 Basslake pppd: Connect script failed ?Bummer?
Dec 6 02:37:38 Basslake pppd: Exit. ??Back to win95 :<(
Dec 6 02:37:38 Basslake chat: Failed ?? HELP !!!!
minicom has no problem with dialing out using /dev/modem
ttyS2 (com 3) irq 5
In the debug errmsg you see lines
Connect script failed
I used the basic initialization string that the US Robotics manual
There is no connect noise from the modem (seems that scripts fail to
contact the modem )
May be it is because of the initialization string ?
Also my SuSE distrobution of Linux seems to have had some critical
files in different directories than the PPP Faq , PPP HOW-TO docs have
as standard .
one of which is the 'dialogue' file that PPPSetup says is a necessary
file to have for things to work right .
I found it in /usr/sbin , instead of /sbin so I just made a symbolic
link to where PPPSetup expects it to be - hope that was OK to do.
Seems to me that setting this up should be a little more 'people
freindly' than it is ,causing things to keep mounting to a mass of
confusion , especially to users NEW to Linux like myself. Aside from
my less than perfect health , (emphysema) ,
I am still a determined person , but not a masochist.
Still I really like Linux but definately need a little help
any help will be reflected back as I gain experience
with Linux .
thanks for any help
