PPP options for diferent nodes (was: ... different providers)
since the node I connect through to my provider has changed, I'm trying to
change the configuration for it. My first step was to change the file
/etc/chatscripts/provider to change the phone number to dial out, which is
now like follows:
ABORT "NO CARRIER"
ABORT "NO DIALTONE"
ABORT "NO ANSWER"
next, I changed the DNS in /etc/resolv.conf, and then the file
/etc/ppp/peers/provider like so:
# This file was generated by pppconfig. You can edit the following lines
# but please do not delete lines or the change the comments or you will
# confuse pppconfig.
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/retenet" #pppconfig_connect
user my_id@servicom #pppconfig_user
# End of pppconfig controlled lines. You can add lines below here without
# confusing pppconfig.
where "retenet" is the new name for both /etc/chatscripts/provider and
/etc/ppp/peers/provider. The problem is that I had to change the old line:
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/infovia" for the new:
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/retenet" and the initial
comment on the above file says not to delete line or change the comments...
I have had no success in connecting thus far, what's the right way of doing
this? how do I do in order to connect through the new node?
Thanks in advance,
