I am sorry but I don't understand.

You should not be running kermit against the same line that you are
using for PPP. The pppd program or chat should lock the serial
device. In addition, the pppd process puts the tty line into 'root
exclusive' mode (TIOCEXCL). This should prevent any non-root user from
using the line; provided that you are using the 1.1.14+ kernels. (It
may work with the old tty drivers in earlier kernels. I just don't

If you use kermit to dial the system, then you should shell out of
kermit to run the pppd process. This will suspend kermit. Do not
attempt to run kermit on one virtual console and then pppd on another.

If you could explain a little more of how you are getting kermit
confused with pppd, or pppd confused with kermit, then I might be able
to offer additional help.



1. kermit escape character

Does anyone know what escape character is in kermit. I.e
how to get back to the command line after a connect command?
I believe it is ascii 28 on my kermit, but I don't know
what keys to press to issue this. Also I'd like to set it
to control ] c, which I am used to. Does anyone know what the ascii
character is for that ?
