external modem, kppp, timeout expired signal 15
Recently installed Simply mepis.
I have supraexpress 56e external modem. Modem works fine with windows and Slackware. So no hardware problems.
In Mepis KPPP I put correct DNS, passwords, pppd timeout=60sec.
Modem query returns ok.
In etc/ppp/options file noauth exists.
File permissions for pppd and kppp are setuid for owner and group(read and write)
when I try to connect it connects, authenticates username and passwd, then says pppd starting.
And i receive PPPD timeout expired, Terminating on signal 15.
What is in Mepis, preventing this modem to work?
