Red face exit status 17 kppp


Hi

I recently installed a new modem (Intel 537EP) internal.All drivers are installed..Kppp detects the modem fine..Its dials up to my ISP but then dies with an "error status 17". Check all over but i managed to find nothing to fix the problem.

Could someone please help/advise me what needs to be done!

Thanks guys!
Bye

From man pppd: error 17 means that the PPP negotiation failed because serial loopback was detected

I'm no expert on this...I would review your setup if you have verified no ISP problems. IOW, you can connect with this modem in another OS, etc.

This also may be very helpful:

I've never had this error myself; however, I think it means that pppd just receives what it sent out. For instance, you normally receive a "CONNECT" string or similar upon a good ppp connect and apparently pppd never received this and only received what pppd broadcast out...like an echo. I still would suggest that this would most likely be a kppp (pppd) setup problem. That link I provided although extremely detailed does take you step by step to diagnosing your connection status.
