I'm sure this question has been asked before in this newsgroup, but
I don't normally read this one, so I don't know. For a couple of
years I have used ppp to connect to Concentric.net, my ISP, but they
recently installed 56K Flex modems, and they now require PAP. I have
been trying to make the change-over and finally got the pap-secrets
thing worked out, (and wasted hours because they changed login: to
user: ) but now when I get the connection it gets dropped and I get
Receive serial line is not 8-bit clean.
Problem: all had bit 7 set to 0.
After the reading the PPP-HOWTO, I get the impression that pppd will
automatically set up for 8 data, no parity, and 1 stop bit.
So my question is: Is it my ISP that has to make the change?
If not, can anyone help me with a suggestion as to what I might do?
Again, I apologize if this is a much-answered question, but it is
brand new to me.
