connecting problems (kppp)


I spent sometime trying to figure out what was happening before i asked here at the forum .since yesterday my kppp connection fails (almost) everytime i tried to connect , the error was :
bash-2.05# kppp
kppp: helperPid: 1018
kppp: found kppp.pid containing: 995
kppp:
---------------------------------------------
and the kppp window said :

"kppp has detected a /root/.kde/share/apps/kppp/kppp.pid file

another instance of kppp seemes to be running under process-ID 1074

make sure that you are not running another kppp,delete the pid file ,and restart kppp."

I did delete the pid file each time the message showed, and sometimes i could connect but most of them i couldn`t.
I also looked at the man pages and i found pid as being a "retrieve processs id(s)" .
i get different pid values ( 771,1774,1196,995,1018,etc...)each time i try to connect.
--------------------------------------------
my kppp process at command prompt:

sorry for the lenght of the thread :

1-can this be a hardware problem ?
2-I installed a firewall (firestarter).could it be interfering in anyway?
3-what does pid do ? does it appear only when there is a problem?

Have you tried any other dialup besides kppp to see if its clearly the program or connection, anything else that might be conflicting ? It could be your firewall but most likely not though.

Also, the pid is the process identification.. every process that is running has one. Most likely when its failing, the process isn't ending properly and that is why it tells you to kill the process so you can run it again since only one instance can run at any given time.

i tried gnome-ppp and i get connected but as soon as i start any browser it kills my connection.

i have a simple firewall setup :
-disabled ICMP fitering
-disabled service configuration
-disabled ToS filtering
-disabled masquerading

"Most likely when its failing, the process isn't ending properly and that is why it tells you to kill the process "

i just remember that two weeks ago there was a blackout while i was online . is it possible that some programs got damaged ? there were a message right after i switched the computer on that said something about running fsck2 or something and it also asked for my password . As i`m used to reinstall at slightest problem , i`m holding myself here not to go through all config steps again .

To discart a hardware problem try with another modem.

Do you have installed or compiled a program by the time the problem begins?. If you have installed it, try removing the program.

Try connecting without the firewall.

Also in the log of kppp it have a line that says:
kppp: UnLocking Modem Device

the manpage of pppd says:
lock Specifies that pppd should create a UUCP-style lock
file for the serial device to ensure exclusive
access to the device.

So it can be that another process is trying to access the serial port.
Maybe a serial mouse?
check the BIOS configuration of the serial ports?

hope this help ^_^
