Ahh, the joys of troubleshooting a pppd connection.
First, the issue: PPPD reports "sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0xb29c4a84> <pcomp> <accomp>]
" 3 times, then quits with a timeout message. I do not see any rcvd LCP packets. Note that this is BEFORE I can login.

Setup: Kubunto with Kppp (and wvdial).
Hardware: Lucent WinModem, seems to be supported in linux.

Log files:
PPP log:

Note: the ordering of the events in the debug window above is a little off. 'Connect...' is actually the last command I get from the other side. The bottom of the Login Script Debug Window says "Starting pppd..."

I've tried using wvdial, and the same errors appear in the /var/log/debug
Code:
 Mar  3 09:22:55 localhost pppd[12258]: using channel 9
Mar  3 09:22:55 localhost pppd[12258]: sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0x1e1dd01b> <pcomp> <accomp>]
Mar  3 09:23:05 localhost last message repeated 3 times
Note: This is with Debug 7, and noauth options both in the pppconfig, and kppp's pppd arguments.

This connection works fine from a winXP box nearby.

I've search google, and howto's, and am at my wits end regarding this. Does anyone have a clue? I don't seem to be getting any response from the other side. According to some sites, I should be getting "rcvd [LCP...". But I don't get anything, even with passive mode turned on, and waiting 5 seconds after each "send [LCP" command.

Any suggestions? (besides installing Windows)

Thanks for your time!
