Re: PPP conections



Thanks Marc and others.
It was a hardware problem!!!
Not my computer but one of the phones connected to the line draws current when it recharges exery 15 minutes.. It got cold and drew enough to make the systems feel the line was hung up.
Recently the temperature has been low in canberra.
/dlh.

Hi

Do you have an "idle timeout" set for your connection?
Try this (as root at bash prompt #):
# grep idle /etc/ppp/peers/*
or alternatively
# pppconfig
