pppd complains link isn't 8-bit clean!
A friend and I have been having problems getting ppp to work on his
laptop. Everything works with the chat script until just after ppp is
engaged. Then it complains as follows.
pppd Serial connection established
Using interface ppp0
Connect:ppp0 <-> /dev/ttyS1
LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Receive serial link is not 8-bit clean:
Problem: all has bit 7 set to 0
I've tried connecting with ppp from windows 95 on the same machine with
the same modem etc, and it all works fine, so it would seem the problem is
something to do with the debian setup. The only thing I can think of is
interrupts, but I have looked at /proc/interrupts and it seems okay - but
perhaps this doesn't tell the whole story???
Any help would be much appreciated.
