Invalid net mask CRTSCTS??


I'm using KDE, and it's internet dialer, which I assume is a graphical front end of pppd. How would I disable crtscts in internet dialer?? I changed flow control to Xon/Xoff, and even none, but I get the same error every time I dail my isp up. They were little help to me, I wish there was a little more Linux support! Oh well..... Any ideas??

ISP's support for Linux is, to quote a phrase, pants.

Check your /etc/ppp/options file for the config you have stored there. Also, what type of modem do you have.

What is the error you keep getting?

The modem I'm using is a Lucent Winmodem...now a "Linmodem". It dials, and allows me to send my username and password, but then something very very wrong happens. Here's the text of the dialouge box that pops up:

The pppd daemon died unexpectedly!

Exit Status:17

See 'man pppd' for an explanation of the error code or take a look at the kppp FAQ on

http://devel-home.kde.org/~kppp/index.html

When I click on the details button here's what it returns:

Linux pppd[191]: invalid net mask vaule 'crtscts'

Sometimes the exit status is 2 or 5. but that has only happened once or twice for each #.

Have you managed to get your modem to work before with Linux (i.e you have configured it using the linmodem how-to?)

My manual page for pppd says that error 19:

19 We failed to authenticate ourselves to the peer.

What does the contents of your /etc/ppp/options look like?

the /etc/ppp/options file reads as follows

# General configuration options for PPPD:
lock
defaultroute
noipdefault
modem
/dev/ttyS1
230400
crtscts
# Uncomment the line below for more verbose error reporting:
#debug
# If you have a default route already, pppd may require the other side
# to authenticate itself, which most ISPs will not do. To work around this,
# uncomment the line below. Note that this may have negative side effects
# on system security if you allow PPP dialins. See the docs in /usr/doc/ppp*
# for more information.
#noauth
