Unhappy ppp problems

I recently installed the latest version of Red Hat. My external modem works ok and I can dial my isp, send my user id then my password both of which seem to be accepted by the isp. Then comes a message that pppd is starting followed by MTU something or other. Beyond that nothing happens. I'm dialing in through X-windows. I have tried various ppp script changes but can't get anywhere. Any suggestions? mab

is there anytype of error message, or can you give the exact message before it stops responding.. etc? what dialup are you using.. kppp.. etc.. do any others work or have you tried any others?

Thanks for your interest in my ppp problem. I've tried dialing my isp with kppp. After connecting with the isp the login window asks for a user id and password it displays entering ppp session, then Ip address, then MTU 1524 and stops. When I click continue (an option on the login terminal window) a window pops up with "pppd daemon died unexpectedly" and the modem disconnects. I've also tried dialing with rh ppp dialer that does not display error messages. mab
