Query: connect with ex. ser. modem pppd died unexpectedly
Hi, I think this is the best place to explain my problem.
I have just bought an external serial modem, a 'Phonic Pro', and have had some trouble connecting up to the internet with it. I used KPPP on RedHat 9, I just entered my Wanadoo connection number and password on the 'dialogue' setup option and left out all the rest.
It dialled fine, but then it gave out the error message 'pppd died unexpectedly, Exit status 16. KPPP could not prepare PPP log its very likely that pppd was started without the debug option.' I checked my pppd version; 2.4.1. I also vi-ed some error messages, but I forgot to tranfer it over so that xp can get at them.
Please let me know if you need any more information, then I will have to reboot *sigh*, but any suggestions will be very helpful.
