A connection is established. This seems not to be the problem. It is shown with ifconfig as ppp0.

I cannot ping 8.8.8.8, at first I supposed that is due to filtering icmp packages by the provider. But this is not the case. When I have a connection here with Windows I can ping 8.8.8.8

So I think either the connection does not work or I have a firewall working (but didn't configure one).

Here the ouput of "pppd call umts debug nodetach"
Code:

I'll append the output of tcpdump to this posting, hopefully someone has an idea.

When I try to access a website, it seems that nameresolution works, but the browser times out after a while.

Your last post shows that you have made a successful connection. The problems you describe suggest a problem with DNS. What is the content of /etc/resolv.conf after the connection is made? Can you ping the DNS servers at 212.23.97.2 and 212.23.97.3?

Hello allend,

no I cannot ping any IP-adress, I don't think that it is a DNS-Problem, because when I ping a name, the IP-adress of the host is shown, maybe they are in the DNS-cache, but I did ping adresses which I did not visit since several month and had an IP-adress although. So my idea is that DNS works, but routing does not work.

I found an example routingtable for a ppp-connection in a network-book, I'll try that out.

Anyway, thanks for your help, any suggestions are appreciated.

Markus

sakis3g does not work. It tries to use wvdial and crashes then, as I wrote earlier wvdial has a bug and exits.

The problem seems to be that I have the correct settings, but sometimes I don't have enough signalstrength in order to receive a correct configuration.
And when I have a connection, I suppose I have a routing-problem.

I've added some compiler flags to wvstreams that should avoid the crash, I suggest you to try the new build script

Thanks ponce, I'll try that tomorrow.

I've read much about GSM and PPP recently, I don't have a solution yet, but it seems that the newsgroup comp.protocols.ppp is very valuable regarding to this.

Hi Bourbon,

I didn't read this thread but I'll read it carefully. My problem with sakis3g was that it uses wvdial which yet does not work correctly with Slackware-current (32bit and 64bit as well). I will at first have to rebuild wvstreams with the patches ponce posted above and then rebuild wvdial.

But thanks for your help anyway.

Markus

i believe that this really is a routing issue, although the output of "/sbin/route" that you posted looks quite similar to mine (except that i have a lo interface set up). wvdial as well as sakis3g will just run pppd sooner or later.

looking at the sakis3g script, there are at least two snippets which might interest you:
firstly the pppd-options:

Code:
    pppdoptions="${PPPD_OPTIONS}"
    [ "a${pppdoptions}" = "a" ] && pppdoptions="modem crtscts -detach defaultroute dump noipdefault usepeerdns usehostname ktune logfd 2 noauth name  sakis3g lock maxfail 3"
    if [ "a${PPPD_PEERS}" != "a" ]; then
        if [ -d "${PPPD_PEERS}" ]; then
            if [ -f "${PPPD_PEERS}/sakis3g" ]; then
                debug "Found peers file %s.\n" "${PPPD_PEERS}/sakis3g"
                pppdoptions="-detach dump logfd 2 name sakis3gpeer maxfail 3 call sakis3g"
            fi
        fi
    fi
you might try to pass these to pppd

and secondly the post-connection stuff, especially this one:
Code:
routing_fix() {
    ! find_binary "netstat" && return 1
    ! find_binary "route" && return 1
    need_arg "pppint"
    hostpeer=`${netstatbin} -rn | ${grepbin} " ${pppint}$" | ${grepbin} -v "^0.0.0.0 " | ${cutbin} -d\  -f1`
    if [ "a${hostpeer}" != "a" ]; then
        routing_delete_gateways
        debug run_command "${routebin} add default gw ${hostpeer}"
        debug "Added correct default gateway: %s.\n" "${hostpeer}"
        debug run_command "${netstatbin} -rn"
    fi
    unset hostpeer
    return 0
}
evidently, sakis3g will just run
Code:
route add default gw 10.64.64.64
to fix routing issues.

Been following this since my earlier suggestions, and apologies if they have not worked. Anyhow, I have been trying to figure out what might be happening (or not) and I have no idea if this is related or not, but running 64-current, I too am unable to connect with my Huwaei 3g Modem, but, using the same modem on the 32 bit edition, I have no problem at all.
Can't for the life of me figure out why. Is it possible that the hardware itself will only work under a 32bit environment?

I have a Subnotebook Lenovo Thinkpad x100e with Slackware-current (32bit) and a Notebook (Samsung) with Slackware64-current. As far as I can tell, the issues are the same, I tried all chat-scripts and pppd-configurations I wrote on both computers and the errormessages and debug-output respectively were almost the same.

Also I have Installed Win 7 on both machines, 64bit on the Laptop 32bit on the subnotebook, the stick works with both.

The errormessages regarding wvdial are also the same for both, 32 and 64bit.

persist
my /etc/ppp/options file
Code:
#/etc/ppp/options
is empty
on the commandline as root I did
Code:
pppd call umts debug nodetach
I copied the resolv.conf file (which is created in /etc/ppp/ when the connection is established to /etc and added nameserver 8.8.8.8
Also I did what san wrote
Code:
route add default gw 10.64.64.64
That was all. The problem was obviously that I did not really know how this line in the chat-file
Code:
OK 'AT+cgdcont,"IP","internet.eplus.de","0.0.0.0"'
had to look like. It was not clear if it was needed, but if one omits the line and additionally uses "local" instead of "modem" in the umts-file, there is a local echo working and it looks like a connection is established and the authentication worked, but this is not the case.

One question remains. Regarding to the chat-file I pushed the PIN to the stick via the commandline
Code:
echo "AT+CPIN=XXXX" > /dev/ttyUSB0
which works (XXXX is the PIN), but one has to push the pin to the stick only once when the stick is connected to the computer. If I put the line for the PIN into the chat-file, the file fails when the PIN is already given to the stick. Question: does anyone know, if it is possible in the chat-file to ask if the PIN is already commited to the stick? regarding to some documentation I read a line
Code:
AT+CPIN?
should work, but I had no success because I don't know the syntax for an optional argument.
