Need help with Alcatel USB + Red Hat Linux 7.2

Post by Mik » Sat, 27 Apr 2002 21:29:02



Hello people

I'm completely lost with my Alcatel USB on a Red Hat 7.2 Linux system.
I followed the HOWTO for the installation of the driver from http://linux-
usb.sourceforge.net/SpeedTouch/
I'm using stock 2.4.18 kernel, that's supposed to have the needed USB and
ATM support, and the beta2 PPP over ATM daemon.
I followed the HOWTO exactly, and reached the point of having a ppp0
interface, with correct IP addresses assigned both for local address and
remote address:

ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol

          inet addr:194.xx.yy.zz  P-t-P:194.xx.yy.zz  Mask:255.255.255.255

          UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          RX packets:11 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

          TX packets:14 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3

          RX bytes:2512 (2.4 Kb)  TX bytes:674 (674.0 b)

I have a default route to ppp0
But, when I tried a ping like:

        # ping -n { some existing IP address }

I got absolutely no answer.
After doing 'pppd', /var/log/messages show:

Apr 26 11:06:33 gateway pppd[1363]: Plugin /usr/lib/pppd/plugins/pppoatm.so
loaded.

Apr 26 11:06:33 gateway pppd[1363]: PPPoATM plugin_init

Apr 26 11:06:34 gateway pppd[1364]: remote IP address 194.xx.yy.zz

If it helps, this is my /etc/ppp/options:

lock

defaultroute

noipdefault

noauth

passive

asyncmap 0

lcp-echo-interval 2

lcp-echo-failure 7

name {my user here}

user {my user here}

plugin /usr/lib/pppd/plugins/pppoatm.so

8.35

The value 8.35 is OK for my provider.

Any help is appreciated!
