ppp dialup problems


hi, i'm a newbie to slackware 9.0..
i connect to internet with a 56k dialup... i used to be connecting to the internet using kppp in kde, but now i've switched to fluxbox. so i think i should connect to the internet using pppsetup.
the modem actually dialing when i type ppp-go after filling in all the information ppp needs.
but then it stops there(after the dialing process ended)... it seems it can't logon(or whatever; i can;t tell) and disconnected seconds later....

i've triad to run pppsetup again, and i've made sure i 've filled in the right informations(username, pass). furthermore i did also try other authentication but only chap works(at least it can dial)..

could anybody tell mewhat actually has gone wrong?

any helps are appreciated...

Make sure your ISP's IP numbers are in the /etc/resolv.conf file.

Yeah, i went back to double check the configurations..
i checked the /var/log/messages i got this

May 28 12:29:23 slackware chat[1393]: CONNECT
May 28 12:29:23 slackware chat[1393]: -- got it
May 28 12:29:23 slackware pppd[1392]: Serial connection established.
May 28 12:29:23 slackware pppd[1392]: Using interface ppp0
May 28 12:29:23 slackware pppd[1392]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
May 28 12:29:23 slackware /etc/hotplug/net.agent: assuming ppp0 is already up
May 28 12:31:26 slackware pppd[1392]: Modem hangup
May 28 12:31:26 slackware pppd[1392]: Connection terminated.
May 28 12:31:27 slackware pppd[1392]: Exit.

and from syslog
May 28 12:17:36 slackware pppd[1168]: Connect script failed
May 28 12:21:01 slackware pppd[1263]: Connect script failed
May 28 12:21:49 slackware pppd[1270]: Connect script failed
May 28 12:25:13 slackware pppd[1282]: Connect script failed
May 28 12:29:54 slackware pppd[1392]: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests

and one thing that i think was quite weird is that at the config summary files(etc/ppp/pppsetup.txt) generated by pppsetup, it said "

ATENTION: I couldn't find 'PPP' in the kernel or as a module.
You'll need 'PPP' in the kernel or as a module to make a PPP connection. "

Will this be the culprit? but i thought every modern distro should include the ppp and foremostly, i could connect to the internet in kde using kppp.....

What does the output of the list modules command, "lsmod" say about having a ppp.o module? Any differences between using a "regular" external modem and an USB one?

check that pppd, the ppp daemon is installed, if it isn't the connection will die. you should be getting a message to that effect. just a possibility, hope it helps.

Things to try

Something in your rc.hotplug is not referenced correctly. CD to /etc/rc.d and type "./rc.hotplug status" and paste the results here. Also try leaving the modem unplugged (it is external right?) while booting and then after booting plug it in and run "./rc.hotplug restart" . See if that makes a difference.

Why not use Kppp in Fluxbox? Flux is only a window manager (so far ), while KDE is, well, the K Desktop Environment, which means it's a suite of apps too. So just use KDE apps in Flux. You already have the KDE/Qt3 libraries installed

Yes you can use KPPP with Fluxbox or you can try Minicon, it's a text based type dialer we used to use for BBBs.

It may be installed by default. man minicon for help.
