FW: PPP Errors



Dear fellow Debian users,
	I'm having a little bit of trouble in establishing a PPP connection to my
ISP, Sprynet.  I have been watching the PPP questions in this forum, and
have adopted the wait 1 second (\d) statements at the end of the script
after a successful connection in order to provide the IPS side time to get
ready for PPP LCP.

	However, this appears to not have fixed things up.  Below is the messages
log lines that are pertinent to the problem encountered.
----------------------
<... snip previous log lines where chatscript dials phone number, gets
connected, inserts host, user id, and password>

Oct  6 01:28:25 linux486 pppd[3193]: Exit.
----------------------

	I can, and do connect using Windows NT as well as Windows 95/98, and the
DUN script outline looks like this:

set port databits 7
set port parity even
transmit "^M"
waitfor "Host Name:"
transmit "xxxxx^M"
waitfor "UIC:"
transmit $USERID
transmit "^M"
waitfor "Password: "
transmit $PASSWORD
transmit "^M"
set port databits 8
set port parity none

	How can I make the chatscript or pppd work the same way?  Is there anything
that I can do?  Does anyone have a sample Sprynet script for connecting?
And why is it that Appletalk seems to be wanting to respond to the PPP
connection?

	With greatest thanks and appreciation,

		Erik.
