I pinged my ISP with the response:
22.214.171.124(126.96.36.199):56 data bytes
The number is the number that I pinged.
I then went to /etc/resolv.conf, found it empty, and
entered the ISP numbers. I also went to
/etc/ppp/resolv.conf. It already had the numbers with
the lead "nameserver".
Then I tried kppp. It dialed, I heard the ISP response
and then got:
The pppd daemon died expectedly
Exit status 1
On the terminal was additional information:
Warning: KDE detected X error (invalid parameter
The response to the pon command was the same as
before, it dialed, I heard the ISP response, but I
could not connect to the internet.
