I'm having much trouble with connections.
Using: Potato, USR 3Com 56K FaxModem (external)
I've got it set up right - the port I/Os and the IRQs are
right (using ttyS0), the initialisation strings are correct,
I'm using hardware control, loggin on to freeserve is OK
(using PAP), the static DNS resolvers are correct,
and things behave as normal...
...for about 10 seconds. Then the transfer drops off and I
get time-outs. However, plog reports a connection, as
does ifconfig, and the modem Carrier Detect light is on.
I really don't know what is going wrong -
under Windows I can get a constant 4000 bps, and I get this
too under Linux, but then the transfer just seems to slow
and then stop and I really don't know why.
This is the (censored) contents of the relevant files:
# ispauth PAP
ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' ABORT VOICE ABORT 'NO DIALTONE'
ABORT 'NO DIAL TONE' ABORT 'NO ANSWER'
# end of pppconfig stuff
Yes, the mad initialisation strings really are correct
(nicked from the windows connection log).
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/provider"
I really hope that someone knows what on earth is going wrong
here as I've no idea right now!
