I am attempting to get PPPD to work from my Debian Linux machine with a
marked lack of success....
I have been firing up Minicom to dial and log on, then CTRL-AQ to drop
out of Minicom without reseting the modem (as described in the PPP-
HOWTO) and then entering a command thus:
pppd -d -detach /dev/ttyS0 38400 &
again from the PPP-HOWTO. The additional commands are defined in the PPP
This is the data I get from the log:
Nov 25 16:12:25 server pppd: pppd 2.2.0 started by root, uid 0
Nov 25 16:12:25 server pppd: Using interface ppp0
Nov 25 16:12:25 server pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS0
Nov 25 16:12:25 server pppd: sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <mru 552>
<asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0xd7a90045> <pcomp> <accomp>]
Nov 25 16:12:43 server last message repeated 6 times
Nov 25 16:12:44 server pppd: Modem hangup
Nov 25 16:12:44 server pppd: Connection terminated.
Nov 25 16:12:44 server pppd: Exit.
There is a little modem activity and then the modem drops.....
The link (same modem, same ISP) works fine under Win95 & WinNTWS. I have also now managed to set up a dial-up script with the same result.
I have checked with my ISP and they are not using PAP or CHAP.
Any ideas? I have also added the noipdefault parameter as well.
