Description Boris Glawe 2004-11-10 23:32:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: I am connected to the internet via ADSL With FC2 the connection works perfect With FC3 though, adsl-start / ppp won't connect to my provider. I have specfified the correct username and the correct password. I have compared the files /etc/ppp/pap-secrets and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets on both my FC2 system and my FC3 system - the files are 100% identical. When trying to connect ppp produces the following output in /var/log/messages: Nov 10 22:35:08 muli pppd: pppd 2.4.2 started by root, uid 0 Nov 10 22:35:08 muli pppd: Using interface ppp0 Nov 10 22:35:08 muli pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/2 Nov 10 22:35:09 muli pppoe: PPP session is 7951 Nov 10 22:35:12 muli pppd: Remote message: Request Denied Nov 10 22:35:12 muli pppd: PAP authentication failed Nov 10 22:35:12 muli pppd: Connection terminated.

Nov 10 22:35:12 muli adsl-connect: ADSL connection lost; attempting re-connection. The ethernet adapter, my ADSL-modem is connected to, is a Realtek 8139 Chip. It is activated. My Mainboard is an Asus A7N8X-E. I've also tried to use one of the onboard ethernet adapters, with the same result. A friend of mine has also reported that he cannot connect to the internet via ADSL with FC3. He has a different provider then me, but he uses the same Mainboard. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. configure an ADSL-connection with system-config-network 2. try to connect 3. observe /var/log/messages Actual Results: no connection will be established. ppp's message: Remote message: "Request denied" Expected Results: an connection to the internet of course :-) Additional info:
Comment 1 Thorsten Leemhuis 2004-11-11 06:24:12 UTC
Had similar problems after FC3 update, but did not find enough time to debug yet. What helped for me was on of the following: - a simple reload of the network driver kernel module after boot is complete. - try to bring the ethernet device up where the ADSL Modem is connected (e.g. /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up)
Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2004-11-11 15:55:57 UTC
Is this also the A7N8X-E Mainboard? If it is the same, please assign this bug to kernel.
Comment 3 Boris Glawe 2004-11-11 16:34:17 UTC
How can such a bug be related with the kernel? The connection to the provider has obviously beed established, but the server "denies the request". The hardware seems to work!? I'd rather guess that something's wrong with the negotiation between the provider (I think it's a radius server) and ppp. I don't know much about details in the kernel, but I cannot imagine, that the kernel doesn't work properly.
Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2004-11-11 17:01:29 UTC
If it is working, if you are reloading the kernel driver of your network card, then i'd say it is a driver problem.
Comment 5 Boris Glawe 2004-11-11 17:02:35 UTC
A few minutes ago I learned a new abbeviation for newsgroups: "PEBCAK" which means "problem exists between chair and keyboard" I've simply entered a wrong password. This was not my failure though, since I picked up the password from my old /etc/ppp/pap-secrets. Problem is that the gnome-terminal paints an O (the letter) exactly like a 0 (zero). Maybe this has to be reported as another bug! sorry for the confusion. There's nothing wrong with ppp from my point of view. greets Boris
