pppd nomagic to stop loopback errors
QUESTION: Where do I add "pppd nomagic" to stop analog modem loopback errors? (I am using Gnome PPP.)
I am using Ubuntu LTS 8.04 on a laptop and have an analog modem connected via USB serial cable.
The 8.04 dialup and the analog modem work flawlessly.
Modem disconnects when using Ubuntu LTS 10.04.1 Live USB:
I am testing LTS 10.04.1 on a live USB drive that I purchased preinstalled from On-Disk.
On the live USB drive, I am able to get a dialup connection with my ISP long enough to pull up a web page with the browser. However, the analog modem disconnects within minutes with exit codes 16 or 17.
16 The link was terminated by the modem hanging up.
17 The PPP negotiation failed because serial loopback was detected.
I reproduced the error message using wvdial
I reproduced the error message
"The PPP daemon has died. (exit code = 17)"
on the laptop running 8.04 by using the wvdial command and Gnome-PPP
The error doesn't occur when running pppconfig & pon/poff on the same platform under running Ubuntu 8.04.
wvdial command uses /etc/wvdial.conf.
It looks like pppconfig & pon/poff does not have the same problem as Gnome-PPP/wvdial.
