IPCP problem with pppd
I'm having a problem with pppd (deb version 2.3.5-2) on a slink box.
IPCP doesn't appear to be either logging or working properly.
a user dials in
mgetty answers, detects PPP frames and starts pppd
pppd does LCP negotiation
pppd authenticates the user with PAP
then nothing......even tho I have lcp-echo-interval etc set nothing
else logs at all.
if run ifconfig I can see the ppp0 interface with the correct IP addresses
even though IPCP negotiation doesn't get logged.
from the client side Windows DUN reports a successful connection
with a win95 or windows NT workstation you can ping both the server
and hosts on the remote network.
BUT a windows 98 client can't ping anything. (herein lies the problem)
i've never seen pppd _not_ log IPCP negotiation with debug and kdebug 1
