pon used to work until i downloaded lots of files from the site and
then installed wvdial, which seems to start the pppd. i switch tty's
and ping the isp. nothing happens.
pppd 2.3.5 started by root, uid 0
using interface ppp0
cannot determine ethernet address for proxy arp
local ip address 184.108.40.206
remote ip address 220.127.116.11
1. what is wvdial supposed to do or look like after the pppd
starts?; (or, what do need to do to connect to my isp?);
2. why would wvdial "disable" pon?;
3. is there a log for pon (or does /var/log/ppp.log only apply to
4. in the ppp.log, the remote ip address is foreign to me. ...never
heard of it. my isp ip addy is 18.104.22.168. so, how do i change
22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199?
a. in what file is the "remote ip address" being stored?
