Internet connection failing after ISP login


Hello there,

I'm getting some problems hooking up to my ISP. I've only just managed to get my modem dialling and this new problem is even harder than the last.

I've got the following from my ppp log:

SuSE Meta pppd (smpppd-ifcfg), Version 1.16 on ludwig.
Status is: disconnected
trying to connect to smpppd
connect to smpppd
Status is: disconnected
Status is: connecting
pppd[0]: Plugin passwordfd.so loaded.
pppd[0]: Removed stale lock on 536ep (pid 31710)
pppd[0]: --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.54.0
pppd[0]: --> Initializing modem.

pppd[0]: ATM1
pppd[0]: OK

pppd[0]: >

pppd[0]: --> Don't know what to do! Starting pppd and hoping for the best.
pppd[0]: Serial connection established.
pppd[0]: Using interface ppp0
Status is: connecting
pppd[0]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/536ep
Status is: disconnecting
pppd[0]: Terminating on signal 15.
Status is: disconnecting
pppd[0]: Connection terminated.
Status is: disconnected
pppd[0] died: non-normal exit

How do I get the correct command sent to my ISP?

W.G. Unruh's Howto "How to hook up PPP" said that the message
"pppd[0]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/536ep"
means that ppp has connected so why is it falling over.

Please help,

I was wanting to be broken into Linux nice and gently, but it has been anything but so far. If I can get this running I'll have to move onto the nightmare that is Samba. Ho hum

Chucky

i have an intel 537ep modem that works fine. Are the drivers installed? I notice you're using WvDial - try kppp and see what happens.

The drivers are definately installed. It took me a day to do it, but they are there (I wouldn't have got that far without them!)

What's kppp and how do I use it?

Tried that, all I got was:

Command not recognised

I really wish Linux would just do things and I didn't have to waste hours searching the net to find out how and then slogging away searching down bloody dependancies.

I say again... Ho Hum. Time for me to download ppp and I bet I'll have to spend hours learning more stuff I don't really want to know...

Thanks for your help.

Chucky
