Question

When does it die? Does it ever connect or does it tell you its trying to authenticate you then die on the connection? What ISP are you using. I know a few ISP's require you to use your full email address for your login name instead of just the username or beginning of your email address.
Hope this helps...

Drew

How long of a wait, a minute, 30 seconds, 5 minutes? And what ISP is it? Have you checked their online help, I know most ISP's don't support it over the phone, but I have seen most give instructions to connect to them using Linux online.

Question

Have you tried anything besides Kppp, like the Gnome dialup configuration, well, I know Redhat 7.0 comes with it. Can't think of any others that might. What Distro are you using?

RedHat 7 might be the problem. I have nothing but heard bad out of it, even Linus Torvalds dogged it, you might want to try Redhat 6.2 and see if that does the same thing 7 did.
