Unhappy KPPP Dialup Error...


Hi,

I am trying to dial up from my laptop using KPPP... but somehow the dialing up always exits with an error code 1. Viewing the logs, I get this:

Jul 20 18:07:58 localhost pppd[1066]: pppd 2.3.11 started by root, uid 0
Jul 20 18:07:58 localhost pppd[1066]: ioctl(PPPIOCGFLAGS): Invalid argument
Jul 20 18:07:58 localhost pppd[1066]: tcsetattr: Invalid argument
Jul 20 18:07:58 localhost pppd[1066]: Exit.

I am not too sure of what is the problem.. my modem has been detected properly after I installed the pcmcia-cs packet.. but I can't seem to dial in... Been surfing around to look for answers but just can't seem to find the right ones..

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot!!!

Regards,

Tub
