 Point-to-Point-to-Point-to-Point ad nauseum

Is there anyone using RH 5.0 who has managed to set up a working PPP
connection to an ISP?

Please give us some clues!

Mailing lists and Newsgroups are crammed with RH 5.0 PPP probs. Makes
you wonder does the thing work at all?

I'm using it right now. I'm also editing some web notes for HylaFAX: a
simple "How-to" for RedHat and typical installations is next, as part
of that.

Actually, "the thing" is very easy to set up and works very well.  All
you _really_ need is two files, the /etc/ppp/options file and an
/etc/ppp/isp-chat file.

There is a very clear HOWTO on the subject in the /usr/doc/HOWTO/
directory.

You could also download the ezppp program, or use the netcfg tool that
comes with RedHat.  Perhaps if you told us what steps you had taken,
what _exactly_ went wrong, and what kind of error messages you got from
/var/log/messages then we could provide more help on your problem!

e-mail me with more info and I'll be glad to help.

One of the happy few, I presume? I've been at it for over a week now and
nada result. Clues please, clues, mate.

Please cure me!
For aetiological purposes:

This is what I get when dialling manually using minicom:

Welcome to Worldonline

login: rgosens
Password: my_password
protocol Wol > PPP
 Entering PPP Mode.
 IP address is 195.241.140.125
 MTU is 1524.

I tried using the Xwindows Network Configuration tool. "[A] few clicks of a
mouse" should give me a working networking interface, the manual said.
Right.

This is /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0:

PERSIST=no
DEFROUTE=yes
ONBOOT=no
INITSTRING=ATZ
MODEMPORT=/dev/modem
LINESPEED=115200
ESCAPECHARS=no
DEFABORT=yes
HARDFLOWCTL=yes
DEVICE=ppp0
PPPOPTIONS=
DEBUG=yes
PAPNAME=
REMIP=
IPADDR=
BOOTPROTO=none
MTU=
MRU=
DISCONNECTTIMEOUT=
RETRYTIMEOUT=
USERCTL=no

This is the syslog it produces:

Then the command line way. Here are the files:

/etc/ppp/options:

connect "/usr/sbin/chat -f /etc/ppp/chatfile"
/dev/cua3
38400
-d
-detach
modem
crtscts
defaultroute
asyncmap 00000000

/etc/ppp/chatfile:

""           ATDT3608100
CONNECT     ""
ogin:--ogin:    rgosens
assword:        my_password
rotocol Wol >   PPP

This is even less productive. Here's the syslog:

Get the straight jacket out. It's turnin' me kookoo.

Yes, it does work.  I am using it.  Currently fussing with the
firewall stuff so all my other machines can browse, but the Linux
machine is fine.

Practice your debugging 101 skills :-).

1) Make sure your modem is not conflicting with anything.  This means
procinfo, and some poking in /proc, and /var/log/messages.  And maybe
some work with isapnp and setserial.  May mean buying a 'real' modem.

2) Make sure the modem responds.  This means minicom.  I've seen
people complain that it doesn't work and they've never even checked to
see if they can get an "OK" back from the modem.

3) Dial your ISP manually and see what he does.  This means minicom
some more.  Or open a terminal window with W95 DUN and watch what goes
on.

4) NOW try to set up the PPP stuff that folks are troubled with.  I've
had good success with Linuxconf.
