pppd exit code 16


I get this when I use wvdial to connect to dial up internet.

--> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
--> Starting pppd at Fri Jul 11 00:01:51 2003
--> pid of pppd: 10126
--> Disconnecting at Fri Jul 11 00:01:57 2003
--> The PPP daemon has died: A modem hung up the phone (exit code = 16)

Please help me

Thanks

do you have an '/etc/ppp/pap-secrets' file? I found that pppd would die unexpectedly (code 16 in fact) if that file is not present when running kppp; if you are not using pppd proper, that file can be blank, but it must be present (and only root-readable). Do 'touch /etc/ppp/pap-secrets; chmod 600 /etc/ppp/pap-secrets' and see if that solves it. If you still have problems, try filling the file with correct contents; man pppd for more info.

-t.

Yes, I have that file. The problem mysteriously disappeared when I unplugged the ethernet wire.
Thanks anyway

Now I'm curious... how did unplugging the ethernet wire solve the pppd problem?

Why on earth would you torture yourself with dial up if you've got high-speed? I understand when away, but why when it's right there???

Cool

Actually I am moving to a different city and I wont have highspeed over there (atleast for a couple of months), so I wanted to configure it before that. Also, I wanted to learn how it works.

Ah, I see Nice fore-thought.

I hope you don't go too crazy without high speed, I know I am going to when I move here shortly.

Cool
