No Error Message from KPPP
When I run the log, it only says that the connection was closed by the server unexpectedly. This happens shortly after all the lights go solid on the Courier modem.
The last time I used RH was version 6.0 and as I remember, I had no problems connecting to Bellsouth.net. However that was several years ago.
I would not switch OS except that I'm planning on switching to DSL in less than a month when it becomes available in my area. Due to the always on connection, I wanted a more secure OS. Also I'm not happy with MS changes in OS activation and validation. This is my way of protesting.
I do not have to use KPPP if there is another way to easily dial out. However since I've not used Linux that much, I have a greater comfort level if I can stay in a graphical enviroment. RH 9.0 is much more friendly than I remember 6.0 during setup.
