kppp problem (no transfer)?


I am relatively new to Slacware. I instaled Slack 10.0 and configured kppp in order to "surf the net".

I was surprised. I connect sucessifuly but there is no transfer. When I try to visit google dot com I couldn't.

I searched this forum many times, and found many similar problems but I couldn't find solution.

What I'm suposed to do?

Please help me!

Thank you in advance

PS.
I must mention that I culdn't ping any IP adress nor domainname.

Hi,

ping don't work with IP adress. the same is with domain name.

Here is result of ifconfig

Code:
lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
          inet addr:213.240.12.105  P-t-P:194.247.192.254  Mask:255.255.255.255
          UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:3 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:4 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
          RX bytes:42 (42.0 b)  TX bytes:63 (63.0 b)
And, here is result of route

Code:
ernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
194.247.192.254 *               255.255.255.255 UH    0      0        0 ppp0
loopback        *               255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
default         194.247.192.254 0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 ppp0
I must tell you that I waited for result of route command about 1 min. I thing that this delay is not normal!

I forgot to tell you that resolve.conf is OK, because there is IP adress of the my ISP DNS servers (I called them and checked)

PS.
I'm using ISDN USB modem - if that does matter

I tried traceroute and nothing?!?!?

I got an error which says

"Unknown domain yahoo.com"

Everything is like I am disconected, but I'm sure that I'm on the net because kppp starts counting my online time.

Please help me, becouse I think YOU have more expirience with linux than me?

What shall I do next?

from there choose rc.bind
and then exit from there
then run

/etc/rc.d/rc.bind start

then add this line to ur /etc/resolv.conf

and see if u can browse the internet ,and if u are still not able to

Hi,

I did just as you said, and I brought up my bind server. And still notnig. By my humble opinion, I don't have problem with DNS because I can't ping even plain IP adress.

I started kppp from the terminal, and look what errors I found!

Code:
milicic.marko@orion:~$ kppp
Opener: received SetSecret
Opener: received SetSecret
Opener: received OpenLock

Opener: received OpenDevice
QMetaObject::findSignal:Accounting: Conflict with AccountingBase::changed(QString,QString)
Opener: received ExecPPPDaemon
In parent: pppd pid 2631
Opener: received OpenResolv
Opener: received OpenResolv
Opener: received OpenResolv
Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device
Kernel supports ppp alright.
Opener: received RemoveSecret
Opener: received RemoveSecret
Opener: received KillPPPDaemon
In killpppd(): Sending SIGTERM to 2631
Opener: received RemoveSecret
Opener: received RemoveSecret
Opener: received OpenResolv
Opener: received OpenResolv
Opener: received RemoveLock
It was pppd that died
pppd exited with return value 5
Sending 2627 a SIGUSR1
milicic.marko@orion:~$
By some reason, there is no ppp0 device, but (as you saw from ifconfig) ppp0 exists.

I formated partition and installed slack again, and there is same problem hanging over my head.

By

PS.
I hope you know what I am souposed to do NOW?

I detected modem very well!

I got even firmware version number, on my ISDN usb modem.

I think that everything is OK with modem.

kppp says OK and initialization string goes as well. Then kppp says conected at 640000. That is OK - isn't it?

Does it matter that I have USB modem, and I use ACM drivers in kernel?

look in your /etc/resolv.conf your isps nameservers should be in there. If not check /etc/ppp/resolv.conf

cat /etc/ppp/resolv.conf >> /etc/resolv.conf

make sure the option in kppp to obtain dns automatically is checked.

if all else fails ask your isp for its dns servers ip adresses. i think you know where to put them by now.

No No No You don't understand. I can't even ping plain IP adress. From that fact I deduced that there is no problem if DNS server at all.

I start thinking thet there is problem because I use ISDN USB modem winch (aperantly) uses some other drivers (modules) than ppp0.

Corect me if I'm wrong
