I am able to dial my ISP using wvdial, however, the PPP daemon dies just following the entry "looks like a welcome message".
My /var/log/messages file shows the following entry:
"pppd 2.3.11 started by root, uid 0
Couldn't attach tty to PPP unit 0: invalid argument
Also, there's a message created by wvdial just in front of the message "looks like a welcome..." that says "IP address is 22.214.171.124. My ISP's Primary DNS is 126.96.36.199.
1.) What is tty?
2.) Why is the system trying to attach tty to ppp?
3.) What do I do to cause tty to attach to ppp?
4.) What is IP address 188.8.131.52?
5.) Shouldn't the ip address be that of my ISP?
