KPPP Problems


I'm trying to use Kppp to manage my dialup connection. RH9 with a LinModem.

But the problem is that it keeps dieing (Error: 16), and I'm not too sure where to start.

Also is there a way to accelrate the connection?

Cheers.

Is it already connected to your modem? If so, have a look at /var/log/localmessages (logfile for serial connections/modem)...

Yes KPPP connects to the modem, and I looked at /var/log/messages, but I can make sense of them

edit: that shoulf be can't make sence of them.

Well, I see what is said but I'm not sure where it is connected...

Okay, let's try this systematically. Did you run the setup of Kppp? That is an absolute must (in case you didn't know).

I don't know what that is: /etc/hotplug/net.agent. Do you? Is it a script calling modprobe? Perhaps it is documented or has comments in its file.

Now, modprobe: Can't locate module ppp-compress-21 is trying to load module ppp-compress-21 to the kernel and obviously doesn't find it. Search for it on your system, if you don't find it google for it.

I'm assuming that this causes the time-out.

Oh yes, and also look here.

Good luck.

I'm not too sure what you mean here, but I did install the LinModem, and link Kppp to /dev/modem
