Re: Newbie Install - Serial port and PPP does not work
We can close this thread. PPP works now. Thanks for all those who jumped
in to help me. I really like the response time of this list. First
response from Shaleh was in ten minutes. WOW!!
Here is the scoop. I un-installed PPP package and installed it again. It
still did not work. I was doing all the right things (I thought).
chatscript was correct so was the options file. But there was operator
error. /dev/ttyS1 in options file was in lower case. I know that I did
not put that in there. Yes I did read the faq-o-matic and it tells you to
watch out for case but I was focussed on the other file in ppp directory
called optionsttySXX. And I did not see any reference to the port in that
file except the file name. The comment inside that file says that I should
rename that file for my serial port to optionttyS1 and edit it to put my
hostname. I had done that. I do not have the system in front of me so I
may have the file name wrong. Once I renamed that file back, everything
started working. What is that file anyway? Is it for people who would
dial in to my machine using PPP?
