Minicom/PPP problem


Hi,

Am using minicom to dial in to my ISP. The modem (on com1) dials the number and gets connected.

I go, Crtl+A and exit without resetting. Then i type pppd at the prompt....

However, my ppp connection fails!!!...

I've logged the error messages from pppd . They are as follows:-

pppd 2.4.1 started by root
using interface ppp0
connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/2
LCP: timeout sending config-requests
connection terminated

I've read through the manual entry for pppd and have noticed that there are some optional 'LCP ' related parameters there.....unfortunately, i do not quite undestand what LCP is in the first place...

Someone please help???!!! ....

regards,

Mar4

Hi Joe,

would appreciate any help I can get here.....Using RH 8, kernel 2.4 . Desktop environment is Gnome......

I've even tried calling the modem directly : # pppd /dev/ttyS0 (after minicom dials in), but i still get the 'LCP' error.

What is LCP and are there any specific files I need to edit to make this go away??...

Thanks...

Marcello

Try using the Gnome pppd utility.( Not too familiar with Gnome but it probably has one) without minicom.
