Smile hello everybody !!

hello everybody!

I'm very happy to get there!
I've installed a debian on an amd 800 Mhz and a p2 400 Mhz, it works fine. I've already installed apache, mysql, phpmyadmin,samba and all seem to work fine.
But now I 've got a big pb with my connection to internet. I use wvdial and a serial modem ; I've checked my isp parameters
they are ok. So when I launch wvdial, the modem starts and the carrier sounds good. But when I'am connected to my isp, the connection stops, and the modem is reinitialized (as if I was rejected by my isp because of a wrong login / pswd or my isp
couldn't assign an ip adress to my system )

Welcome to the forums. I moved your thread to Linux - Networking, as it's more a question than an introduction.

Look into /var/log/messages file. It's main log, among other things, pppd (deamon that connects using ppp) redirects its logs here, so all ppp error messages are there. When you find the right fragment, you should see what's wrong. If not, post ths fragment.
