Unhappy PPP daemon has died! (exit code = 10)


G'Day .... installed RedHat 7.1.

Get the following error

PPP daemon has died! (exit code = 10)


in /var/log/messages there is also a line which says that "IP address could not be determined" before the connection is terminated.

does anyone have a clue where I should look for answers, please?

does this error always occur? an error code 10 will happen occasionally if you use dial up.

Question Always happens!

Yes, this error occurs each time I dial, I cannot connect .... ever!

I have put a force address = My_IP_Number into the /etc/ppp/wvdial.conf program (I have a static IP) as suggested in man page. This results in my connection not being terminated and not actually establishing communication either.

I am really confused ... any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

if you're using dialup, then the ip shouldn't be static. dsl or isdn would be a different issue... but try commenting out the force_ip line and see if that will work.

Unhappy Permanent Modem Connection

I have a permanent Modem connection to the internet over a 56k pstn line (not dsl or isdn). I have a static IP address, it is not dynamically allocated. PPP has been working OK for months on RedHat 6.1 .... now when I upgrade to 7.1 it doesn't work. You infer that I should be using another product, .... what would you suggest?

ok... that makes a bit more sense...

i'm not a big fan of distro upgrades precisely because of problems like this. i'm guessing that a clean install of 7.1 probably would have gone without a hitch. the upgrades don't do well when a file has been changed, like you probably had done to the wvdial.conf on 6.1 -

could you post your wvdial.conf file? also, do you happen to know what versions of pppd and kernel you're running?

Smile as requested

I originally upgraded but found there were too many problems. Too many things were confused, so I re-formatted and repartitioned the hard drive and did a fresh 7.1 install. My kernel is 2.4.2-2, my wvdial is 1.41 and my pppd is 2.4.0. My wvdial.conf is as follows;
[Modem0]
Modem = /dev/ttyS0
Baud = 57600
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 S11=55 +FCLASS
Set Volume = 1
Dial Command = ATDT
Init4 = ATM1L3

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyS0
Baud = 57600
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 S11=55 +FCLASS
Init4 = ATM1L3
Dial Command = ATDT

[Dialer OAK]
Username = My username
Password = My Password
Phone = My Phone #
Inherits = Modem0
Stupid Mode = 1

That's it, I took the "Force Address" out as you suggested before.
Thank you
Grum

well... i can't see anything wrong with it. you'll probably want to put the "force address" line backing... my only guess would be to update the pppd - www.samba.org/ppp - maybe there's been a bugfix. i'll keep looking, tho.
