Re: Connect with CHAP -

Date: Wed Nov 29 2000 - 18:01:09 CET

          Ok, I deleted the 102 meg DOS partition and set it up
          as ext2 /dev/hdb1. That gives me an extra partition
          that I can use either with muLinux or Red Hat 5.2 on
          this box.

          But I notice that no one touched on my first question

          I can't connect to my ISP [AT&T]. I found
          /usr/bin/ppp and it appears that I never get through
          the entire process. I enter ppp-on and it goes
          through the to the point where it says "Please Wait"
          and dies there?

          PS shows several lines " /bin/setup/ isp status "

          I see on the screen " ./bin/ps: cannot open
          /proc/18368//stat: no such file " repeated several

          The modem loudspeaker sounds like it is trying to
          connect but obviously CHAP is not satisfied?

          I can connect to the Tampa Public Library system
          without a problem so I know the modem does work.

          I also know that the ATT CHAP system is pretty fussy
          and I have a script for ppp-on that I am using in
          RH-5.2 and 7.0 but I can't see any place to put it in
          mu 10r5?

          What do I need to do next?


          This is the file I'm talking about -


           /usr/sbin/pppd name "" -d
          connect \
           '/usr/sbin/chat -t 45 -v ABORT BUSY "" ATDT3424101
          CONNECT ""' \
          /dev/modem 115200 noipdefault debug modem
          defaultroute crtscts

          Copied from my /etc/ppp/ppp-on file that I have
          been using with RH-5.2 and 7.0. This is critical
          with AT&T Worldnet, get one dot out of place and you
          don't connect!
