internet ??


hi

Whenever I try to connect to the internet from red hat linux 7.2, after the modem dials the number, I can hear the sound from the modem, after which it immediately gets disconnected. I get an error 'pppd daemon died unexpectedly'.
There is no mistake in the username and password I typed.


Bye

Heh as far as I know, the modem should at that moment talk with the other modem. They should be talking just as long until they have the right speed and then talking for real (called a handshake). (passwd etc etc)

It might appear that you are using a wrong init string. Try only ATDTXXXX where xxx is the telephone number and no init strings at all....

Check the file /etc/ppp/options Fore more information how this file should look like goto: http://www.linuxaddicted.org/index.p...tarticle&id=25


Hope this helps
