[1.2 installation] - how to see pppd options from diald?
Hi (again). I'm having trouble getting diald to start PPP (pppd)
I got PPP set up fine for manual use (using /usr/bin/pon to start it,
and having my extra options in /etc/ppp.options_out, etc.).
However, I'm having trouble figuring out what's going wrong when diald
starts pppd. pppd reports "Could not determine remote IP address".
(I think) I also got that when setting up pppd for manual use. I added
<local addr>:<remote addr> to my /etc/ppp.options_out file and pppd works
fine when started via /usr/bin/pon. (I see how /usr/bin/pon appends
my options to its command line to run pppd.)
For diald, I have "local ..." and "remote ..." set in my diald.options
file. I thought that would prevent the above error message, but it
* How can I see the command line diald used to start pppd?
(I've got debugging set to 31. Log messages show some other command
lines, but not the command line for pppd.)
* What exactly does "Could not determine remote IP address" mean?
(What conditions does it typically indicate, and what typically
* How do I specify extra pppd options in the diald configuration file
I would try adding the options I put in my /etc/ppp.options_out
file (to try to explicitly respecify the addresses), but I can't
see how to give diald options to pass directly to pppd.
* Specifically, does the diald options file have an equivalent for
the diald command-line option "--" (to give options to
pass directly to pppd)?
