kppp disconnects on first try.

I am using Fedora Core 4. I have an external modem connected to ttyS0.

The kppp modem dialer always disconnects (or is diconnected?) the first time I try, but it always succeeds the second time.

The modem log window seems to show everything happening correctly -I get connected- then it suddenly disconnects and the log window disappears. It asks if I would like to have debug info enabled, I say yes, and then the connection proceeds the exact same way, but I am not disconnected. I have tried this a dozen times, included now a complete, clean, new install and it always happens the same way.

I don't see any way to turn on the debugging info in the kppp manual that KDE provides.

I tried to use the command line pppd, but I could not figure it out at all from the man pages.

I accidently found another, somewhat complex, way to connect by using the network connections setup and activating ppp0, after which it automatically dials without kppp, and I stay connected the first time.

Until I went to Fedora Core, I never had a problem with kppp. I don't see why it should not work correctly now. It seems like it should be minor fix.

Debug is set in /etc/ppp/options -- dunno exactly whether just the keyword "debug" is sufficient, or you need "debug=1"; possibly it is just commented out, else man ppp...

You might want to try Kinternet instead of KPPP.
