Thumbs up Logging on to network


How do you turn off "Logging on to Network" in Kppp dialing? I get connected to my isp but the dreaded message above comes up. From windows you can check this off.

Go in KDE Control Center and check in the Network options

For GNOME: i don't know :/

Thanks wiBo

Thanks for the info. I'm using KDE. Couldn't find any Network Options pertaining to "Logging on to Network" in Control Center Networking. The installation is 'Desktop'. I tried several flavors of Linux including Mandrake 10, Elx, Alt Linux,,,etc. All respond the same. My guess is that it has something to do with ppp. I installed these flavors several times. Once in Elx I managed to get out on the internet with Kppp authenticaion set to terminal..Had to manually enter UserName and Password. Thought that wow this is it, so reinstalled Mandrake, etc the same. All that comes up is jibberish in the terminal. Reinstalled Elx and now same jibberish. Hit continue button and "Logging on to network.." again. Current install is Alt Linux Junior 2.2. In any event the connection times out. And back to windows for the internet.

Thumbs up Latest

Thanks to Knoppix 3.3 we made it onto the internet. Fired up Knoppix off CDRom. Added username, password, etc. Dialed up and bingo - onto to the net. Checked config Knoppix had and only one thing was diffent than what I had all along. Noauth in the pppd commands setup. Tried this on other flavors of Linux and resulted in Exit code 2 instead of Logging on.. . Next time with Knoppix the same Exit code 2. Finally had to add some init codes for the modem and problem solved. Modem is US Robotics External.
