Hi, I've tried, but can't seem to figure out how to get this working. Yes,
I'm a newbie.
I'm running Woody, and made the following config file with pppconfig
# This optionfile was generated by pppconfig 2.0.10.
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/debitel.net"
Rerun pppconfig and make the above line read:
All you have to do is enter your ISP "username" when asked, not your
E-Mail address as you did.
It looks like your modem is working OK and getting the necessary info
from your ISP (IP, DNS, etc). I suspect that the error noted above is
resulting in you not automatically logging in to your account at your
ISP, via PAP. If you just put in your login name (username) that you
use when you are asked by pppconfig and your password, then PAP will
automatically log you in. Do select PAP authentication. Also you can
check the current status of your "username" and "password" by looking in
the /etc/ppp/pap-secrets file near the bottom. I suspect it will have
your E-Mail address listed in the first column... this should be your
username enclosed is quotes. Re-running pppconfig with the correct info
should clear this up.
Normally, not being able to contact various hosts around the internet
with lynx or konqueror indicates a DNS problem. You can usually tell
this if you can "ping" hosts by IP number but not by name. I really
don't think this is your problem here, but if you continue to have
problems after making the above suggested changes, come on back with the
results of a "route" and "ifconfig" command after you have established
Is the connection terminating by itself or did you terminate it in the
above log extract? If it is terminating itself, then it would add more
support to you not really getting logged in, IMHO.
