    pppd terminating ???


    I have RH 7.2 with Actiontek 56K modems in couple of boxes. About 6 months ago I was able to dialup with KPPP and get online with no problem, however now have reinstalled and configured as before but get following error from pppd log.

    Terminating on signal 15
    Connection terminated
    Recieve serial link is not 8-bit clean
    Problem: All had bit 7 set to 0

    Checking pppd man page, "15" is "peer not responding to echo request"

    Also this dialup to ISP works fine on Windows, and I am also trying to contact ISP tech but they are hard to get hold of.

    Thanks for any help

    are you trying to authenticate with PAP or CHAP? - check with your ISP as to which one you should use.

    Checked with ISP and they are using PAP to auth..
    Dialup config to PAP/CHAP or PAP still gives same resulting error.

    Hey Steve,

    I found this thread which seems to address a similar problem to you:
    https://www.redhat.com/archives/redh.../msg01683.html

    He has even gone as far as to state how he fixed it. Give it a go and let us know...

    Hi CopperTop

    Thanks for the tip. I went to the link and it looks like what I need. As soon as I can I will configure up and then hookup and see if all will be well. I'll let you know how it works out. I sure learn a lot by trying to figure out these problems, and thanks for the help. Just curious, where does the name CopperTop come from???

    Bye for now
    Steve

    Also where are you in Canada, I go up there climbing often.

    Hey pettee,

    I'm in Calgary. The Rocky Mountains are basically in my backyard!! Woot!

    [history lesson]
    The name CopperTop is probably most noted as being the nickname for Duracell batteries. Along these lines, it is what Neo is called by Switch in the Matrix - referring to the fact humans are power (i.e. batteries) for the machines. But without over analyzing it (too late for that!), it's because I have red hair. As such, it's been my online nick for several years now...

    BTW, welcome to the boards!

    Hi CopperTop

    Finally found time to fiddle with 'chat' and 'ppp-on' scripts and analyzing log messages in 'pppmsg' log file. Got thru authentication and got logged on. Will share more details later, and the link led me to some real helpful info. However our local ISP is having problems resolving domain names so still can't reach sites. Even Wind users are dealing with this.

    Bye for now!!

    I must be getting old. BTW ??
